Type of resource: Conference Presentations and Papers
Recovery framework implementation requires a comprehensive, whole of service strategy if it is to transform the culture and practices of an organisation. The journey of a large metropolitan mental health program in implementing the Collaborative Recovery Model (CRM; Oades, Deane, & Crowe, 2017) is described. CRM is introduced, as is the reasoning behind the organisation’s choice of this particular model. We map the process of contextualising CRM for implementation in a clinical service, with the centrality of co-production and co-facilitation being highlighted. Voices of lived experience of recovery and clinicians are utilised to demonstrate the shift from the traditional medical focus on risk and deficits (“the roar”), towards a balance with valuing strengths, wellbeing and resilience (“the whisper”). Initial impact of training is discussed in relation to changes in workforce knowledge, skills and attitudes of recovery, and future directions.
