The table below provides a link to each of the nine Emerging Best Practices in Mental Health Recovery components broken out by the four stages of recovery (dependent/unaware, dependent/aware, independent/aware, interdependent/aware) and the three domains/roles (consumer, clinician, community support). Each web page has two tables for each component.
The first table represents descriptors of the consumer's "current status" (book's gray side) and the second table includes examples of "best practices" (book's purple side) for each stage of recovery.
tables are available in PDF
format (must have acrobat reader).
