What people are saying
For a long time I tweeted on the @wayofrecovery hashtag, tweeting short recovery orientated phrases from recovery documents and speakers. 100 Ways to Support Recovery was always a source of inspirational short phrases, which were Retweeted by service users and carers alike. I believe professionals that already work in this way find these types of documents give them permission to practice when other drivers (political, economic and peers) may seem to be in opposition.
