Discovery Through Activity provides a compendium of ideas, resources and practice evaluations that will inspire practitioners to be even more imaginative and to customise their own Recovery Through Activity programmes to meet the specifi c needs of participants.

This accompanying and complementary resource shows how the intervention has been extended, adapted and applied service-wide. The resource showcases the work of a growing community of practitioners who have successfully facilitated Recovery Through Activity programmes to provide a forum for people to refl ect on their occupational lives and discuss and practise lifestyle choices that will enable them to improve their health and wellbeing.
