Abstract

It may seem logical that if people can break down or become ill, then they can also overcome their problems and recover. Yet providers of mental health services often fail to emphasise such positive possibilities for people with mental health problems-particularly those with the most severe diagnoses. Psychiatric services often emphasize maintenance rather than recovery, and many survivors report that receiving a psychiatric label has been severely detrimental to their efforts to lead a worthwhile and enjoyable life and contribute to others.
