Recovery South West Stories Project

Recovery South West launched their Recovery Stories Project on 11th June, 2010.

This project is still active as of June 2016.

Do you have a story to tell?

They are looking for people who can share their experiences of living with mental health difficulties and their journeys of recovery.

Can you offer hope and practical help to others? Or do you support a person in recovery? If so, they would like to hear from you.

The aim of the Recovery Stories Project is to:

  • develop a website to publish stories of personal recovery and promote Recovery
  • publish a high quality book of stories, and supporting information
  • provide evidence for the transformational impact of personal narratives

The Project is supported by the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Second Step and several South West NHS Trusts.

Project team:-
Mike Metcalfe, Aileen Edwards, Sarah Boldison, Vicky Macdougall, Sue Forber and Pat McPhee.
