A recovery care plan includes the following: • Identifying hope and aspirations, this includes personal identified goals • Maintaining friendships and relationships • Accessing public amenities and leisure facilities • Having a meaningful occupation (engage in meaningful activity) • Maintaining healthy lifestyle and wellbeing, including arrangements for physical health checks.
