Policy overview

Aim:

To actively support and promote recovery-orientated practice, values and principles in mental health service delivery.

Rationale:

The Mental Health Services (MHS) of Albury Wodonga Health (AWH) actively seek to establish, support and promote recovery-orientated values in its operations and service delivery. The MHS is committed to ensuring that the recovery principles are imbedded in policies, documentation, and practices. Historically service systems and structures have, at times, restricted staff to engage in practices of a paternalistic nature fostering dependency, learned helplessness and ongoing ‘patient’ or ‘victim’ status.   Recovery-orientated mental health practice moves towards a service model of enabling people to take control and reach their full potential in terms of both health and social gain. This is in keeping with National and State policies and guidelines.
