What is a recovery narrative?

Systematic review and narrative synthesis to develop a conceptual 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.  Available from: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0214678

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.

The conceptual framework was validated in interviews with people from under-researched groups:

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.  Available from: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/pdf/10.1177/0706743719846108

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.

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 people from 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 (2019) The impact of mental health recovery narratives on recipients experiencing mental health problems: qualitative analysis and change model, PLOS ONE, 14, e0226201. Available from: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0226201

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 (2019) The mechanisms and processes of connection: Developing a causal chain model capturing impacts of receiving recorded mental health recovery narratives, BMC Psychiatry, 19, 143.  Available from: https://bmcpsychiatry.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12888-019-2405-z

 

Curation of recovery narrative collections

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

PROSPERO: International prospective register of systematic reviews. CRD42018086997. Available from: http://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/display_record.php?ID=CRD42018086997.

A consultation with 30 curators from 7 countries developed the VOICES typology for curatorial decisions:

A systematic review of content and trigger warnings is being conducted:
