This paper outlines how public mental health and the growing wellbeing movement can contribute to one of the key challenges for recovery: increasing opportunities for building a life beyond illness, keeping in mind the principles of respect for people’s self determination, choice, control and potential, as well as for support that does not undermine citizenship.

Recovery, public mental health and wellbeing is the third of a series of briefing papers from ImROC.

Audience: Mental health services, public health practitioners.
