Recovery - support with moving on

Recovery is being able to live a meaningful and satisfying life, as defined by each person, in the presence or absence of symptoms. It is about having control over and input into your own life. Each individual’s recovery, like his or her experience of the mental health problems or illness, is a unique and deeply personal process.’ - Scottish Recovery Network, 2007

Stockport Council currently commissions a number of services to work with individuals who are supported by secondary mental health services or have been in the past. Please speak to your care co-ordinator or consultant or contact Stockport and District Mind or SPARC.
