Abstract [en]

Background: Recent literature on recovery describes the process as deeply personal and unique to each individual. While there are aspects of recovery that are unique to each individual, this article argues that focusing solely on these overlooks the fact that recovery unfolds within a social and interpersonal context.

Materials: Drawing from qualitative data, this article describes aspects of recovery that involve the contributions of others, the social environment and society.

Discussion: These aspects of recovery include relationships, adequate material conditions and responsive services and supports.

Conclusion: The authors consider the implications of these social factors for transforming psychiatric research and theory as well as for recovery-orientated practice
