Question 1 (25 marks total)
Anthony (1992) champions the importance of having a “recovery vision” in which consumers, family members, and direct service workers open themselves to a person’s potential. This vision calls for the mental health system to discard the old belief that mental illness is a chronic disease that leads to a deleterious course. Nationally known consumer advocate, Patricia Deegan and William Anthony, have proposed the concept of “recovery is a non-linear process”. Recovery involves a progression towards growth and there are also periods of multiple setbacks, periods of rapid change or little change (Anthony, 1993; Deegan, 1988).
(a) Discuss the meaning of “recovery is a non-linear process” by applying the operational framework of recovery.
