90 min. DVD and Viewers Guide
In this lecture, taped in front of an audience of consumers and mental health providers, Pat Deegan draws both from her personal experience of recovery from schizophrenia, as well as from her research. She discusses key turning points in the recovery process and describes self help strategies she has found useful. Pat makes the point that recovery is not the privilege of a few exceptional people, and she reviews worldwide empirical research which shows a majority of those diagnosed with major mental disorders do recover. This video will provoke rich discussions, while inspiring hope for recovery.
Includes a 7-page Viewers Guide with discussion questions.
