Recovery from Psychosis: A Ten-Week Program

Over the last few years Karen and I have been asked by a great many families and people with mental health problems if we could work with them on their recovery. Though we have been able to offer a few places at our Recovery House on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland over the last three years, it has not been near enough. We have given this much thought and have now developed a ten-week recovery program.which has been developed from our learning in the Scottish, Western Australia and Italian Recovery Houses.
