Recovery-based support services are now fundamental in mental health service delivery. This book fills a gap, presenting applied knowledge and skills for supporting people whose lives are adversely affected by mental illness to live in recovery. This knowledge is drawn from the burgeoning consumer literature, complemented by relevant research and academic literature, and is readily available in one volume for the first time. These are the skills and knowledge for supporting the recovery journey of people with mental illness within the Aotearoa/New Zealand context. Topics covered include the mental health services in Aotearoa/New Zealand; the role of the mental health support worker; interpersonal/communication skills; approaches to self-management of a mental illness and for planning life's journey embracing active participation in relationship with family/whanau and friends, professionals and other support. Knowledge for supporting people within the bicultural and multicultural context of Aotearoa/New Zealand is entwined within the chapters.
