The Recovery Strategy marks the next stage in our journey to put the voice of service users at the heart of everything we do
What is the Recovery Strategy?
The Strategy was co-produced by over 250 service users, carers and staff and focuses on four goals:
- Supporting people who use services and those they care about, by embedding our recovery principles and taking approaches focused on: strengths and being a whole person.
- Supporting staff to develop and feel they can deliver the best possible care, based on evidence and best practice, whilst feeling valued and enjoying their role as part of team BEH.
- Supporting systems by ensuring that all of our internal processes are recovery focused and that we develop seamless working with other health, social care, voluntary and community organisations, to deliver the best care at the right time.
- Supporting practice by ensuring staff use the best possible tools, to allow us to work in partnership with service users and carers, influencing culture through successful co-production of care and services for the future
The Recovery Strategy also has four principles:
- Always aiming to do ‘with’ people rather than ‘to’ or ‘for’ people.
- Focusing on what people can do rather than what they cannot do.
- Supporting people to develop skills to help themselves stay well.
- Working with the whole person and not just their diagnosis.
Our logo, which features prominently through our strategy document was designed by a service user as an expression of what recovery means to them and it expresses what our work is all about.
