Many mental health consumers are calling for Community Mental Health Center services to focus on creating opportunities for recovery. First person accounts of recovery portray a process which entails developing hope, taking personal responsibility for health, and building a broad sense of self that is not illness-dominated. Community Mental Health Centers can facilitate recovery by enhancing their clinicians' abilities to (1) communicate hope, (2) teach the skills and knowledge consumers need to effectively manage their health concerns, and (3) support consumers' efforts to get on with life beyond illness.
