Concept analysis of recovery in mental illness in young adulthood

Concept analysis of recovery in mental illness in young adulthood Accessible summary The analysis of the concept of mental health recovery in young adulthood uses Rodger's (2000) evolutionary method. This concept analysis suggests that in some contexts the word ‘recovery’ does not reflect the conceptual components identified in this paper and reveals a disparity between professional and personal interpretations of mental health recovery. A new conceptual definition of mental health recovery in young adulthood is presented.

Recovery, as a concept, emerged as a core philosophy of the service user movement that began in the late 1960s and 1970s. Previous reviews on recovery in mental health have presented definitions or a conceptual framework; however, over time it has been open to disparate interpretations. The aim of this paper was to conduct the first concept analysis of mental health recovery in young adulthood within various multidisciplinary contexts. Rodgers's (2000) six‐stepped evolutionary method enabled the analysis of recovery's conceptual characteristics, the identification of an exemplar and the proposition of a hypothesis with implications for practice.

Abstract

Accessible summary The analysis of the concept of mental health recovery in young adulthood uses Rodger's (2000) evolutionary method. This concept analysis suggests that in some contexts the word ‘recovery’ does not reflect the conceptual components identified in this paper and reveals a disparity between professional and personal interpretations of mental health recovery. A new conceptual definition of mental health recovery in young adulthood is presented. Conceptual clarity will facilitate the congruence of mental health recovery and nursing practice with the process of recovery experienced by young adult service users. Recovery, as a concept, emerged as a core philosophy of the service user movement that began in the late 1960s and 1970s. Previous reviews on recovery in mental health have presented definitions or a conceptual framework; however, over time it has been open to disparate interpretations. The aim of this paper was to conduct the first concept analysis of mental health recovery in young adulthood within various multidisciplinary contexts. Rodgers's (2000) six‐stepped evolutionary method enabled the analysis of recovery's conceptual characteristics, the identification of an exemplar and the proposition of a hypothesis with implications for practice. This analysis has revealed the derivation of the term recovery does not convey its identified conceptual characteristics. Identified attributes include the reawakening of hope, reclaiming a positive self and meaning through personal growth. Antecedents include the disruption of illness, stigmatization, internal inventory and contemplative recovery. Identified consequences include the return to normality, reconstruction of self and active social connection. The new conceptual definition is the reawakening of hope and rediscovery of a positive sense of self through finding meaning and purpose within personal growth and connection using creative self‐care coping strategies. This paper reveals an apparent disparity between professional and personal interpretations of recovery. Therefore, the implication for mental health nursing is the congruence of recovery‐orientated practice with the process of recovery experienced by young adult service users.
