Recovery Principles

A Recovery Approach provides the overarching philosophy of Medirose and informs the principles of engagement with Service Users and the processes and objectives of care. It additionally provides the framework for interventions with Service Users and collaboration with other services, to provide a comprehensive pathway through inpatient care and into the community.

Recovery is a holistic, person-centred collaborative approach to mental health care which has become the standard rehabilitation model of mental health care.

Recovery emphasises that while people may not have full control over their symptoms, they can still have full control over their lives. Recovery is not about 'getting rid' of problems; it is about seeing beyond a person's mental health problems, and recognising and fostering their abilities, interests and dreams.

Delivering Recovery

There are four integrated key components to the delivery of the Recovery Approach of care at Medirose, and these are:

1. Effectively utilising the clinical pathway and physical environment
2. Ward-based Milieu Therapy / Therapeutic Community principles
3. Positive Behavioural Approaches
4. Effective management of symptomatology, together with positively risk assessed pathways.
