The Importance of Goals in Facilitating the Recovery Process

Glenn Hopkins


Promoting hope, providing tools, and removing barriers are the shared responsibilities of people recovering from mental illness and the persons (providers, friends, and family members) providing them the formal and informal support in that process. As a person recovering from serious mental illness, and as director of The Main Place—a consumer‐operated mental health recovery center serving more than 800 consumers annually—my experience has been that promoting hope is first and foremost.
