When we decided to “do” recovery did we really spend the time preparing us all for what that would mean? Ron Coleman and Karen Taylor have more than 20 years experience providing recovery programs for people who are affected by psychosis. Their recovery model includes families, people with lived experience, and mental health profes-sionals working together really having a common understanding of what could be achieved, the paradigm shift needed, and the change from a health agenda to an agenda of community development , human development and education. This presentation will look at choice, ownership, people, and self the 4 pillarstones of recovery.
The workshop is open for peers, family members, caretakers, mental health professionals or anyone who is affected by psychosis.


Ron Coleman, Director, is a Mental Health Trainer and Consultant specializing in recovery, psychosis prevention and resolution. Following his role as national coordinator of the ‘Hearing Voices Network,’ he used his experiences of recovery to design workbooks and training packages to enable voice hearers to gain ascendancy over the negative aspects of the voice hearing experience.
Karen Taylor, Director, is an RMN with 16 years experience in the NHS (National Health Service) in England with both older people and adults of working age. She has personal experience of designing, implementing and managing innovative community care services. After leaving the NHS, she managed the company ‘Keepwell Ltd’ for 2 years and ran a psychosis resolution service based on Recovery.
