The term "recovery" seems self-evident to physicians, as it has been traditionally used in medicine to denote a restoration of health to the patient's state before illness or injury. The term is now appearing increasingly in connection with schizophrenia, which brings to light a new definition that has emerged from a grassroots advocacy movement. It must be acknowledged that in mental health, "recovery" means different things to different people. This article briefly outlines current thinking on the topic.
