Own your illness.
“The Recovery Workbook: Practical Coping and Empowerment Strategies for People with Psychiatric Disabilities is a resource for professionals, family members, and consumers / survivors to help people who experience psychiatric disability begin the process of recovery. Psychiatric illness—and the stigma that surrounds it—can be devastating. People are left feeling profoundly disconnected from themselves, from others, from their environments, and from meaning or purpose in life. Recovery is a empowerment process that can help rebuild these important personal, social, environmental, and spiritual connections; and help confront the devastating effects of stigma. Purpose: To teach awareness and understanding of the recovery process. To teach coping and empowerment strategies for recovery. To provide the information and skills needed to strengthen the recovery process, to cope more creatively, and to live life more fully.”
