Helping people to find the right combination of services, treatments and supports and eliminating discrimination by removing barriers to full participation in work, education and community life is the key to the promotion and adoption of a recovery-oriented culture within mental health services.

Application of this framework will contribute to improved mental health and wellbeing as people are supported in new ways to lead fulfilling and contributing lives. The framework will foster new and innovative service designs, and in particular, services designed and operated by people with lived experience of mental health issues.

All Australian jurisdictions and all mental health services have a responsibility to promote and implement the framework.
