Sample text

Narrative research in Scotland Members of the Scottish Recovery Network (SRN) are insisting that recovery should not be understood as an adjunct to other mental health services, but rather that it should be promoted and supported by the entire health system, starting with the first diagnosis. Officials within the Scottish mental health system are especially supportive of recovery approaches and positively inclined towards the SRN. Therefore, the SRN sees as one of its central missions the need to examine the many factors that promote or interfere with recovery.

People who use mental health services are sometimes denied an adequate level of involvement in their own care and treatment. • Active participation: In contrast with being a passive recipient of services, recovery aims at active individuals who take personal responsibility for their care, often in collaboration with friends, family, supporters and professionals. • Holistic and inclusive approach: Recovery considers all elements of a person’s quality of life. It recognizes that the extent to which someone enjoys good health and well-being is influenced by a wide range of social, environmental and individual factors and is much more than the management of symptoms.

Such characteristics are often referred to as ‘protective factors’ since they are capable of diminishing and attenuating the effects of major stressors, traumatic events and cumulative risks on a person (Rutter 1995). Nearly all environments harbour some risks, but when there are sufficient protective factors available to a young person and their family, resilience can develop. Such protective factors can safeguard the child from diseases that loom when he/she is subject to risks or stressors. Masten and Reed (2002) describe the effects of protective factors at various levels: Individual attributes, such as good intellectual capacities, an attractive and friendly personality, a high degree of self-confidence and trust in others, spirituality/belief, as well as talents that are recognized by their bearer and by others.
