abstract

  • Employment is a well-recognized and important indicator of recovery from mental illness. However, a broad range of personally and socially meaningful activity and participation opportunities, beyond paid employment, can be valuable for those in recovery. Facilitating access to these opportunities necessitates pivoting practice toward a broader understanding of activity and participation experiences associated with recovery, health, and well-being and further developing evidence-informed practices. Moreover, there is a need for advocacy to advance engagement in a broad range of activity and participation opportunities that is grounded in the principles of social justice.
