Self Directed Recovery Plan

advertisement
The goal of the recovery process is not to become
normal. The goal is to embrace our human vocation
of becoming more deeply, more fully human. The
goal is not normalization. The goal is to become the
unique, awesome, never-to-be-repeated human being that we are called to be.
Patricia Deegan, Ph.D.
There is hope, a vision of hope that includes no
limits. That even when someone says to us,
“You can’t do that because you have those symptoms dear!” we know it is not true… Those of us
who experience psychiatric symptoms can and
do get well.

Why Have a Plan for Recovery? With a little planning you, like thousands of others, can recover from mental illness and take control of your
life. You can regain a sense of purpose, hope, and meaning in your life. Recovery is an ongoing process of growth, discovery, and change. You
can be prepared to handle any issues that might arise.
How Does the Self-Directed Recovery Plan Work? First, it is your plan. You can use it when you work with your Case Manager to develop
your Individual Service Plan (known as an ISP). The Self-Directed Recovery Plan gets you ready to write an Individual Service Plan (ISP) that
works for you. The most important thing about planning is: If it isn’t your plan, it may not work for you.
What is the Purpose of an ISP? The ISP was developed to give you a way to identify your goals and to make plans to reach them. It also
guides your Case Manager and others so they are able to arrange services and supports so you can reach your goals and make use of your
strengths. You are the most important contributor to your ISP. It is your plan!
Here are some of the benefits of having an ISP that is really YOURS:
 It helps those who are willing to support you.
 It helps you identify and organize your steps towards recovery.
 It helps you recognize and develop your strengths and abilities.
What You Can Expect from Your Case Management Team? Once your team knows your plan, they can help you manage symptoms, medications, and other issues related to general health. Your Case Manager has been trained to:
 encourage you to think for yourself
 listen to you and believe what you say
 treat you in a way that furthers your recovery
 recognize your abilities
 treat you as an equal in planning your recovery
 help you find the resources you need
 give you freedom to make mistakes
 be available to talk when you need it
 believe that you can shape your future
What is a Recovery Coach? Your Recovery Coach is a Peer Support Specialist who, like you, has been given a mental health diagnosis and
currently receives case management services. A Recovery Coach is a peer who has been there and will be delighted to share their experience
and what has worked to help them recover. Each Recovery Coach has graduated from the intensive META Services Peer Support Training
program and is now part of your case management team. Your Recovery Coach will assist you in completing your Self-Directed Recovery
Plan and can provide peer support as you work on your plan for recovery.
What Next? After you have worked through this Self-Directed Recovery Plan and have answered the questions to your own satisfaction, its
time for action!
Step One:
Complete your Self-Directed Recovery Plan
Step Two:
Ask your Case Manager to meet with you to talk about your plans, the steps you want to take, and any changes you are
thinking of making.
Step Three:
Bring your Self-Directed Recovery Plan so you can share your ideas in an organized way.
Step Four:
Focus on goals you can achieve in about 3 months. Small steps are fine!
