Recovery Rules!

RECOVERY is possible! Some experts say that total recovery is possible. I’ve never heard of anyone totally recovering from schizophrenia, but I guess it’s possible. Anyway, I have developed some rules about how to recover from schizophrenia. As I see them, the 6 RECOVERY RULES are:

  1. Effective medications — the frontline weapon
  2. A quality treatment team — includes a psychiatrist and a talk therapist
  3. A good support system — family, friends, community, housing, food, etc.
  4. Self-advocacy — some are not able to self-advocate, some are.
  5. Staying active — mentally and physically
  6. Surviving stressors

 

STEP 1 — FIND EFFECTIVE MEDICATIONS

STEP 2 — RECRUIT A QUALITY TREATMENT TEAM

STEP 3 — BUILD A STRONG SUPPORT SYSTEM

STEP 4 — ADVOCATE FOR YOURSELF

STEP 5 — STAY ACTIVE

STEP 6 — SURVIVE STRESS
