Programs and Services Recovery in Action

Recovery in Action

Recovery in Action is a five-week psychosocial education group for adults living with schizophrenia and other severe and chronic mental illness who are interested in optimizing their wellness and recovery. After the conclusion of the five-week program, participants also receive three booster sessions to help maintain the tools and strategies they have learned. 

Participants will learn skills building and cognitive behavioral strategies that help them take positive and responsible ownership of their recovery. Facilitated by a health care professional and a person with lived experience, the program is based on clinical practice guidelines issued by the Canadian Psychiatric Association and was developed collaboratively with people who have lived experience. 

Topics presented in group sessions include information about:
  • recovery and resiliency
  • self-care
  • building meaningful relationships and strong social supports
  • self-advocacy
  • planning for the future
