Family Recovery Definition

 

“The idea of recovery is approached from a slightly different perspective. The family member strives to recover from the emotional turmoil, grief and/or fatigue that may result from caring for someone with a mental health challenge or illness. The family member’s path to their own mental wellness or recovery is likely to be enhanced by a better understanding of their loved one’s illness and through the development of more effective coping skills. Greater confidence, accepting the situation, and having hope for their loved one will help them to be more effective caregivers and supporters, while also helping them to sustain their own wellbeing. We refer to this as having achieved a level of readiness.”
