dc.description.abstractBACKGROUNDDelivery of recovery-oriented mental health practice is fundamental to personal recovery. Yet, there is lack of service users' accounts on what constitutes mental health recovery in Egypt.OBJECTIVESThe aim of this study was to explore mental health recovery meaning informed by people with personal experience of recovery.METHODSA phenomenological research design was used. Semi-structured qualitative interviews were conducted with 17 adult community-dwelling individuals who identified as recovered/recovering from mental health issues. An inductive thematic analysis approach was used to analyses participants' responses.RESULTSParticipants predominately reported personal and functional definitions of mental health recovery. Posttraumatic growth was the strongest theme comprising: relation to others, spirituality, new possibilities, identity & strengths, and appreciation of life. Themes of acceptance and forgiveness, functional and clinical recovery, and finding hope were also identified.CONCLUSIONSThis is the first study to explore mental health recovery meaning among a sample of people with lived experience of mental health issues in Egypt. Findings suggest that developing and implementing psychosocial interventions to support posttraumatic growth among people with mental health issues is a priority.
