COVID-19 and The Recovery Foundation
An update from Emma Sithole (Founder)
We have been running our Hope in Recovery groups successfully online now for over a year and will continue to do so. We hope as we continue to open-up across the UK to begin offering face-to-face training and groups. We will, of course, keep you updated.
Please continue to follow government advice to keep yourselves and others safe.
Thank you for your support in this, we are praying you all keep well and hold onto the hope that this will pass in time.
Welcome to The Recovery Foundation®
We are here to walk alongside people in recovery from mental illness through our Hope in Recovery group and 12 month support package.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a diagnosis, or if you already have a care team around you. Wherever you find yourself, we want you to know that living well in recovery is possible.
The Recovery Foundation® came about from my own journey through mental illness. In 2007 I was diagnosed with Schizo-Affective Disorder and needed several hospital stays before I was able to be treated at home.
Not only was I very unwell, but I was also hopeless. Life became about surviving from one day to the next.
Now, over 10 years on, things are very different. I am no longer on a cocktail of medication and no longer am I held in chains by my mental illness. I am recovering.
My key to all this?
Please watch this video to find out more about our Founder, Emma Sithole, and her journey from crisis to recovery.
Mighty Oak Model of Recovery:
The Recovery Foundation® bases its materials and resources around the Mighty Oak Model of Recovery.
The Mighty Oak Model of Recovery is made up of 7 stages. Each stage has a different theme following an acorn and its journey to a Mighty Oak tree.
This is a recovery model that has been created from the lived experience of Emma, the Founder, and has its roots in recovery literature and research.
