Recovery stories

Recovery stories showcase the personal narratives and practical advice of people who live with a mental illness, or look after someone with a mental illness.

These short audio and video episodes share lived experience from consumers and carers.  They feature top tips, insights, hands-on help, hope, insider know-how and cautionary tales on recovery, relapse prevention and how to handle mental health issues and support someone through those issues.

They include great ideas about self-care, social connection, working well with your treating team, managing medication and side-effects, key recovery factors, family support, consumer work, dealing with stigma and discrimination, taking charge, making big decisions and much more.

This section of our website, including the videos and descriptions, was developed by and for people with a lived experience.
