This book develops the understanding of recovery and aims to inspire professionals working with people with long-term mental health problems, their carers, and most importantly the service users themselves.

There are two parts of this book. The first considers the contribution people like Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Florence Nightingale, Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln have made to society and how they could be considered to be mental health recovery heroes and how their lives were shaped and in fact enhanced by their mental illnesses.

The second provides narratives from 15 contemporary recovery heroes who have lived experience of mental health problems. Each has contributed to our developing understanding of recovery and each has made a unique contribution to the field. This book aims to inspire readers by offering brief accounts of past and present recovery heroes.
