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.
