Abstract

In this article two consumer leaders use their own experiences to explain the meaning and significance of recovery. They emphasize the importance of hope, personal responsibility, education, advocacy, and peer support. They also address controversial issues, such as the nature of the therapeutic relationship, the place of medications in symptom control, and the need for attitudinal changes in mental health professionals.
