Forensic settings are probably among the most difficult places to think of applying recovery principles. How can people with mental health problems and frequent contact with forensic services be expected to have positive hopes for the future? How they can build a life ‘beyond illness’ when faced with the toxic combination of stigma and low expectations of those around them?

This briefing aims to discuss the challenges, address their implications for staff and describe current best practice within forensic services.

Audience: Mental health services, practitioners.
