Recovery From a Severe Psychiatric Disability: Findings of a Qualitative Study

Mieko Kotake Smith

Abstract

The study reported in this article relies upon a qualitative analysis of the personal stories of recovery of 10 persons beset by persistent and severe psychiatric disability. An analysis of these 10 extended interviews yielded specific findings the author associated with such major themes as the meaning of recovery, turning points toward recovery, critical factors involved in recovery, barriers to recovery, and strategies for recovery. Despite some limitations in the study, including a small and homogeneous sample, the findings lead to provide practical suggestions for other persons embarking on their own journey of recovery and implications for mental health policy makers and practitioners.
