About Recovery Devon

We believe that with the right support and help people with mental health issues can and do recover and live meaningful and purposeful lives of their own choosing. Since 2003 we have actively promoted this idea and sought to put recovery and wellbeing at the heart of mental health provision.

For individuals

We encourage people who have experienced mental health difficulties to join us. You can sign-up for membership, come to events, join our online exchange and more... as much or as little as you wish.

For organisations

We work with mental health organisations large and small to help them understand and implement Recovery practices from employee through to policy level, especially through service user involvement.

What We Do


While we don’t directly offer support we have many resources and LINKS to useful groups. Our CREATIVE CAFE is filled with art by people who have struggled with their mental well-being. The SUPPORT section has coping strategies and information for families and friends of people who are in recovery.


There are poems, films, book reviews and other creations, all with their focus on Recovery. If you are creative yourself and would like to offer some work for our site, please contact us.

To send a poem (anonymous if you wish) start here.


Our resource library is aimed at offering guides, information and research materials for Recovery and other areas of mental health. We also have research papers and accounts from individuals which offer useful or unexpected perspectives.
