Abstract

Mental illness is becoming a significant factor in disability throughout the world. In recent years, The concept of Recovery has become an important component of what is considered to be a benchmark of the treatment outcome for those affected by severe mental illness. However, the concept is complex because of the range of factors that impact on successful Recovery and the economic means of enabling these factors. Economic strategies to address significant disadvantage of Indigenous peoples in Australia and Canada, based on ideals of health developed by the World Health Organisation along with recent economic thinking to empower agency for change in disadvantaged people may lead to a similar strategy to develop Recovery programs in different economic and cultural systems.
