Abstract: If ‘there is no health without mental health” then the opposite is also true: a quality of mental health is achieved through contributions from physical, social, intellectual, spiritual and from opportunity for participation within the whole of society. This paper is a discussion about issues of power achieving recovery in mental health. There is an acknowledgement of the lack of overt discussions concerning power in the mental health sector. Then, power is defined; next there is a discussion of power from the vantage points of health practioner delivery, a systemic approach, and from a consumer perspective. The assumption here is that issues of power need to be overtly addressed in Mental Health in order for recovery outcomes to be achieved for consumers of mental health Services.
