What is a recovery narrative?

Systematic review and narrative synthesis to develop a narrative framework characterising recovery narratives:

Llewellyn-Beardsley J, Rennick-Egglestone S, Callard F, Crawford P, Farkas M, Hui A, Manley D, McGranahan R, Pollock K, Ramsay A, Tore Sælør K, Wright N, Slade M (2019) Characteristics of mental health recovery narratives: systematic review and narrative synthesis, PLOS ONE, 14, e0214678.

Based on a pre-registered review protocol:

Beardsley J, Rennick-Egglestone S, Morgan K, Ramsay A, Callard F, Farkas M, McGranahan R, Pollock K, Manley D, Slade M (2018) Characteristics of mental health recovery narratives as interventions to improve health and wellbeing: a systematic review and narrative synthesis. PROSPERO: International prospective register of systematic reviews. CRD42018090188. Available from: http://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/display_record.php?ID=CRD42018090188.

The narrative framework was validated in interviews with under-researcher groups:

Llewellyn-Beardsley J, Rennick-Egglestone S, Bradstreet S, Davidson L, Franklin D, Hui A, McGranahan R, Morgan K, Pollock K, Ramsay A, Smith R, Thornicroft G, Slade M Not the story you want?  Assessing the fit of a conceptual framework characterising mental health recovery narratives, Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology, in press.

 

Impact of recovery narratives

Systematic review and narrative synthesis to develop an impact framework describing the impact of recovery narratives on recipients:

Rennick-Egglestone S, Morgan K, Llewellyn-Beardsley J, Ramsay A, McGranahan R, Gillard S, Hui A, Ng F, Schneider J, Booth S, Pinfold V, Davidson L, Franklin D, Bradstreet S, Arbour S, Slade M (2019) Mental health recovery narratives and their impact on recipients: systematic review and narrative synthesis, Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, 64, 669-679.

Based on a pre-registered review protocol:

Morgan K, Rennick-Egglestone S, Beardsley J, McGranahan R, Ramsay A, Gillard S, Schneider J, , Pinfold V, Davidson L, Morrison T, Slade M (2018) The impacts of mental health recovery stories on the recipient: a systematic review and narrative synthesis. PROSPERO: International prospective register of systematic reviews. PROSPERO: International prospective register of systematic reviews. CRD42018090923 Available from: http://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/display_record.php?ID=CRD42018090923.

The impact framework was developed into a change model through interviews with under-researched groups:

Rennick-Egglestone S, Ramsay A, McGranahan R, Llewellyn-Beardsley J, Hui A, Pollock K, Repper J, Yeo C, Ng F, Roe J, Gillard S, Thornicroft G, Booth S, Slade M. The impact of mental health recovery narratives on recipients experiencing mental health problems: qualitative analysis and change model, PLOS ONE, in press.

A causal change model for impact through connection was then experimentally developed:

Ng F, Charles A, Pollock K, Rennick-Egglestone S, Cuijpers P, Gillard S, van der Krieke L, Bongaardt R, Pomberth S, Repper J, Roe J, Llewellyn-Beardsley J, Yeo C, Hui A, Hare-Duke L, Manley D, Slade M The mechanisms and processes of connection: Developing a causal chain model capturing impacts of receiving recorded mental health recovery narratives, BMC Psychiatry, in press.

Curation of recovery narrative collections

Systematic review and qualitative synthesis to develop a curation framework capturing decisions involved in curating recovery narratives:

McGranahan R, Rennick-Egglestone S, Ramsay A, Llewellyn-Beardsley J, Bradstreet S, Callard F, Priebe S, Slade M (2019) The Curation of Mental Health Recovery Narrative Collections: Systematic Review and Qualitative Synthesis, JMIR Mental Health, 6, e14233.

Based on a pre-registered review protocol:
