The BIG Recovery is the name of the project working across services to ensure recovery orientated practice becomes embedded in our everyday work.
"Recovery is about building a meaningful and satisfying life, as defined by the person themselves, whether or not there are ongoing symptoms or problems" (Laurie Davidson, Recovery Devon).
This definition of Recovery was chosen by service users, carers and health staff, at a group consultation event in July 2011, at the University of Worcester.
The Recovery website has been put together by Staff, Service Users and Carers and over time it will continue to develop. This is your website and you have a real opportunity to shape its future development. Let us know what you would like to see included and feel free to submit any content or information you would like to see available.
The values and principles of recovery are integral to the care and support we provide for everyone. Actions and outcomes will not just be for the adult community teams but will touch many business units. All actions will feed into the modernisation agendas every business unit is currently working to.
