Recovery and community connections

This is one of a series of discussion papers designed to help generate debate on how best to promote and support recovery from long-term mental health problems in Scotland. Traditional approaches to supporting people with significant mental health problems have tended to make little use of people's connections with their local communities. Yet communities have strengths and attributes which are an important part of recovery which this paper considers.

OU on the BBC: The Human Mind

This resource examines the human mind. Presenter Robert Winston explores all aspects of the human mind - from how we learn, to how we're able to recognise faces and what makes one person 'click' with another. There are three programmes in the series which are available on the website, which is the online learning portal from the Open University and the BBC.
