and Recovery Devon
New versions of two highly influential leaflets have just been published by Devon Partnership NHS Trust.
The first version of this was produced in 2008 and agreed by a consensus across the whole mental health and social care community in Devon.
This was originally produced in 2010 as a companion leaflet intended to offer ideas and guidance to people receiving services who are working on their own recovery.
‘Becoming a Recovery Oriented Practitioner’

‘Understanding Recovery’, by Glenn Roberts and Jed Boardman
‘Becoming a Recovery Oriented Practitioner’, also by Glenn and Jed.
‘Towards Partnerships in Mental Healthcare’, a commentary on the above two,
by Sue Bailey (President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists) and Richard Williams.

Update March 2014:
Briefings 1 - 8 now available - See below
Devon Partnership Trust was a Pilot Site for the first ImROC Project - Implementing Recovery through Organisational Change.

The Mental Health Network published a briefing on progress, 'Supporting Recovery in Mental Health'.
Its first Key Point is that, 'Changing to more recovery focused practice in mental health is possible even when resources are limited, but providers will need to review existing services and staffing establishments.'
Meanwhile, the Project has produced a number of substantial papers on specific topics:
A number of these guides are also supported by webinars, which can be seen here.
