The Section for Recovery (SfR) is a new Section in the HSPR department, which will undertake recovery-focussed mental health services research. The Section is a substantive multi-professional recovery-focussed research team undertaking high-quality research of national and international relevance. It will co-operate closely with the local Mental Health Trust which has developed a pro-recovery policy, and is in the process of orienting its services around this philosophy of care.
The aims of the SfR are: to provide a focus for international quality recovery research within the Institute of Psychiatry; to develop expertise in organisational change and positive psychology; to co-ordinate a national recovery research network; to establish collaborative links, including joint applications and honorary appointments, with leading recovery research centres in the UK and internationally; and to establish a high-quality web presence as a resource for the field. It will meet these aims by undertaking international-quality recovery research, bringing together currently unco-ordinated local and national initiatives, directly informing mental health policy, having high credibility with key stake-holder groups, including service user and carer representative groups, and contributing to the development of a pro-recovery identity in the local Mental Health Trust.

The section is led by Dr Mike Slade, Reader in Health Services Research and Consultant Clinical Psychologist.
