dc.description.abstractThis book brings together two bodies of knowledge. The first body of knowledge is concerned with 'a good life' - understanding what makes life worth living. Research into this topic is variously label led as wellbeing, mental capital, positive psychology or positive mental health. The second body of knowledge is concerned with recovery in the context of mental illness. The notion of recovery has a long history in mental health services, traditionally understood as a 'return to normal'. A typical definition is that recovery involves full symptom remission, full- or part-time work/education, independent living without supervision by informal caregivers, and having friends with whom activities can be shared, all sustained for a period of at least two years. The new understanding of recovery therefore places far greater emphasis on subjective experience, and is the meaning of recovery which is used in this book.
