Recovery Centered Clinical System (RCCS)

The Recovery-Centered Clinical System (RCCS) is based on a belief that recovery can happen but it does not cause recovery to happen. Instead, the RCCS strives to create an environment that supports recovery. It does this by concentrating on two distinct but complementary areas: culture and conversations.

A Person-centered Approach

The Framework for Support is the central philosophy guiding our activities. This philosophy holds that the person experiencing mental illness is at the centre of any supportive mental health system. The goal of the Framework is to ensure that people experiencing mental illnesses live fulfilling lives in the community.
