Treatment is a single word that means many different things -- what mental health treatment looks like for one person may be entirely different from what it looks like for another. Being involved in defining and implementing one’s own treatment plan has been shown to have a direct impact on improving success rates. This means that the individual receiving the treatment takes an active role in defining what recovery and wellness will mean to them, so that they have a clear picture of their goals as well as a sense of ownership of these goals.
There are many pieces that come together to complete the puzzle of recovery through treatment. According to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Health), this includes “tools that can improve the experience on the road to wellness [such as] medication, counseling (therapy), social support and education. Therapy, for example, can take many forms, from learning relaxation skills to intensively reworking your thinking patterns.” In addition, support from family, friends and community can be another component to successful mental health treatment.
