International Centre for Recovery Action (ICRA Whole Life)
IMHCN is co-founder of a new organisation that has been established in 2011, the International Centre for Recovery Action (ICRA Whole Life).
ICRA Whole Life has the aim to promote recovery for people with mental health problems and issues. Recovery is about people being able to take up their lives again. It is essential that individuals are supported and enabled in their “recovery journey” by effective and committed mental health workers and services.
However, the reality is that most people across the world have not benefited from this successful approach. It is also the case that services do not fully understand or support recovery. Whilst there is a strong body of knowledge and experience about recovery practice there needs to be more action to make this a reality for people, whatever their circumstances.
Many services are facing difficulties in implementing the effective practice of recovery. Therefore ICRA Whole Life has been established to address and overcome this lack of wide spread implementation and action.
We believe that the challenge is to ensure that the opportunity to benefit is widely available to all. To help achieve this we have set up this platform to enable everyone to share their commitment, knowledge, experience and good practice.
ICRA Whole Life will enable this by connecting people and communities worldwide as learning collaborators by delivering meaningful education and training, practice development and research.
