Narratives of recovery

Narratives about recovery: A Qualitative study about turning-points for Mental health patients with extensive hospitalization history.

Research indicates that community-based rehab is more effective for mental health recovery in the long term. Yet, some patients still frequently return to hospitals, suggesting local treatments may be insufficient. Our study aims to understand why, identify potential improvements, and assess if services meet patient needs. We're conducting a qualitative, narrative study to learn from patient experiences and find better treatment strategies.
