MHPF - Recovery Star Approach

MHPF - Recovery Star Approach

An excellent site about the Recovery Star for social inclusion appears on the Mental Health Providers Forum website.  The link appears on the post header.

Mental Health Providers Forum describes the Recovery Star as:
'a tool for supporting and measuring change when working with adults of working age who are accessing mental health support services. As an outcomes measurement tool it enables organisations to measure and summarise:

the progress being made by service users
the service being delivered through a project.

The Recovery Star is also an effective keyworking tool. It is designed to support individuals in understanding where they are in terms of recovery and the progress they are making, providing both the client and worker a shared language for discussion mental health and wellbeing.

Core dimensions of the Recovery Star
The Recovery Star identifies and measures ten core areas of life:

Managing mental health
Living skills
Social networks
Addictive behaviour
Identity and self-esteem
Trust and hope'
