What is ARI?

ARI is a National Mental Health Division initiative that brings together people who provide our services, those who use them and their families and community supports, to work on how we make our mental health services more recovery focused.

  • ARI spreads the word that Recovery – a life worth living, with or without mental health difficulties – is possible for everyone.
  • It supports local mental health services in bringing 'Recovery Principles’ into the heart of how we work collaboratively.
  • People who use our services have immense knowledge about their own situation; their strengths, their values and what works best for them. In mental health we’ve found that when mental health professionals value and use this knowledge, and work in partnership with them and those that care for them, that then the results tend to be better for everyone.
