3.2 Priority area 1: Social inclusion and recovery
Page last updated: 2013
Progress of actions under this priority area
The Fourth National Mental Health Plan lists seven actions that relate to social inclusion and recovery. Progress has been made on five of these (see Appendix 3). By way of example, considerable activity has occurred in relation to Action Area 4, which involves adopting a recovery oriented culture within mental health services that is underpinned by appropriate values and service models. A National Mental Health Recovery Framework that is designed to support implementation of a recovery oriented culture in all mental health services is being finalised. In addition, a National Recovery Forum was held in June 2012 at which three international experts gave keynote addresses. This enabled exchange about the implementation of a recovery oriented culture, and provided an opportunity to promote the development of the National Mental Health Recovery Framework.
