Abstract [en]

Background/ObjectivesThe conceptual framework which describes recovery from mental illness is based primarily on studies conducted in English-speaking countries. Knowledge and development of a recovery orientation within other cultures and mental health systems is still limited, and few studies have discussed the impact of varied national contexts on the development and implementation of recovery-oriented services. The aim of this study was to compile, describe and discuss the research on personal recovery and recovery oriented practice within the psychiatric and social fields in the Nordic countries. MethodsA systematic literature review of Nordic research on recovery from mental illness was conducted which included studies that clearly focused on Recovery as a knowledge base in psychiatric and social services.ResultsTwenty one studies were reviewed, summarized and analyzed with regard to their findings regarding the recovery process, descriptions of interventions which promote recovery and factors which might be specific to the Nordic context and mental health system. The majority of the studies were qualitative and stressed the importance of social relations, environmental factors and peer support. The identified research literature was limited and primarily replicated designs and confirmed findings first presented in North American and British studies. Few studies referred to aspects of welfare system, mental health service structures or cultural factors that might impact the recovery process.Discussion/ConclusionThere is a need to identify and describe factors in Nordic mental health systems that may influence the recovery process. If research does not attend to cultural and organizational differences that may impact the development and implementation of recovery services there is a risk that users will not gain access to these interventions in a manner relevant to their needs. A corresponding challenge will be to translate and further develop outcome indicators that can promote a recovery oriented health system.
