In this pilot study we examined whether the use of recovery narratives in people with BD has an impact upon a range of factors, such as quality of life. CREST.BD team member Ros Irving spent three 1.5-hour sessions with 12 people diagnosed with BD talking to them about their understandings of recovery. Together, they created a written ‘recovery narrative’ document. The participants have the option of keeping this document for their personal use, or sharing a version of it via this website with other people with BD who are also working towards recovery. Our new Recovery Narratives webpage is home to six unique and dynamic stories, developed by participants during the course of this study. Visit the page to read these recovery narratives.
