Recovery as a concept has gained increased attention in the field of mental health. There is an expectation that service providers use a recovery framework in their work. This raises the question of what recovery means, and how it is conceptualised and operationalised. It is proposed that service providers approach the application of recovery principles by considering systematically individual recovery goals in multiple domains, encompassing clinical recovery, personal recovery, social recovery and functional recovery. This approach enables practitioners to focus on service users' personal recovery goals while considering parallel goals in the clinical, social, and role-functioning domains. Practitioners can reconceptualise recovery as involving more than symptom remission, and interventions can be tailored to aspects of recovery of importance to service users.
