Traditionally seen as a remission of symptoms, there has been a growing group of academics and people with lived experience with mental illness advocating for a new definition of recovery and a distinction between recovery and cure. In this podcast, Rob Whitley, Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University and Researcher at the Douglas Hospital Research Centre, shares his thoughts about the recovery movement. Recovery is defined by this movement as a return to a meaningful life even as some symptoms and challenges may persist. Dr. Whitley discusses different dimensions of recovery and how it may be defined in different ways by different ethnocultural communities.
