The term ‘recovery’ is at the heart of a debate about the core purpose of mental health services. It is a contested term, with at least two meanings. We call these two meanings recovery from mental illness, or ‘clinical recovery’, on the one hand, and being in recovery with a mental illness, or ‘personal recovery’, on the other (Davidson and Roe, 2007). Each meaning is underpinned by a set of values, and creates role expectations for mental health professionals. We begin by differentiating these two meanings.
