A collaboration between service users and academics, this edited collection includes powerful personal narratives as well as conceptual review and critique in order to convey the vital connection between user involvement and Recovery. For the contributors to the collection, the use of the capital here denotes the distinctive character of Recovery for service users and the central importance of the person's own aspirations. Only the full participation of the person in decisions about their support and treatment will enable their Recovery. Crucially, good practice guidance concludes the majority of chapters and offers clear strategies for maintaining the ‘momentum towards increasing user involvement’ (p. 15), across the varied areas practice, service development and research within mental health.
