Recovery from Mental Illness

What is meant by "recovery" from mental illness, particularly as people seek treatment for illnesses for which there is no cure?

Recovery became a focus of attention when it was recognized that symptom reduction alone was not sufficient, and that functionality and outcomes that are most meaningful to patients and families need to be considered

Three areas targeted to achieve recovery: symptom remission, functional remission, and good overall quality of life
