dc.description.abstractPurpose: The purpose of this viewpoint is to discuss a personal account of the author's personal journey of recovery and evolving understanding of recovery. Design/methodology/approach: A personal narrative describing the ways in which the author's understanding of recovery has been challenged and has evolved. Reference to theories of learning is made to understand this process. Findings: That reflection and re-evaluation of long held beliefs is a painful process. It involves not simply adding to existing knowledge but "supplantive learning" - learning as loss: changing how the author sees things having processed new "threshold concepts" (Atherton, 2013b). Originality/value: A personal account of the painful process of change that has relevance for both people rebuilding their lives with mental health conditions and those who are working with them. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
