From the UK we have a paper from Dr Rachel Perkins OBE which asks some challenging questions about the extent to which our current service system is truly fit for purpose when it comes to taking a recovery approach.

Rachel writes from the perspective of someone with considerable experience in planning, delivering and being in receipt of mental health services.
