Evaluability Assessment of the Recovery Approach in Mental Health

In most Anglophone countries, many of which also experience high concentrations of mental illness, the concept of recovery has come to underpin mental health policy. Core to the critique of the traditional approach to mental health service provision was the need for a shift from services based on clinical recovery (e.g. symptom reduction) to recovery as defined by the service user’s view of what is needed to live a meaningful life. 

This study is an Evaluability Assessment of the approach as expressed through the National Framework for Recovery in Mental Health. The project seeks to assess whether an evaluation of the framework is feasible and desirable, and if not, what else would need to be in place to faciliate this. In line with the Recovery Approach itself, the proposed evaluation activities will involve users in their design adn implementation. The study will also draw on international best practice in recovery measurement and seek to work with the grain of existing public service delivery and evaluation. The study completes in December 2018.
