Recovery and lifelong learning: interrelated processes

Griffiths, Christopher Alan and Ryan, Peter (2008) Recovery and lifelong learning: interrelated processes. International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation, 13 (1) . pp. 51-56. ISSN 1475-7192 [Article]


The purpose of this paper is to explore the links between the process of recovery and the process of lifelong learning, see how they are interrelated and to see what mental health services can learn from any emergent connections to bring benefits to those who experience mental disorder.
A review of literature on recovery and lifelong learning was conducted to determine similarities in the definitions, processes and outcomes of engagement in recovery and lifelong learning.
It was found that recovery and lifelong learning are indivisible, inter-twined processes and that lifelong learning is an essential part of mental disorder recovery.
The findings indicate that greater access to and provision of lifelong learning opportunities should be provided for those who experience mental disorder to help facilitate their recovery.
