    Seven Sisters and Birchwood work within a framework of Recovery Oriented guidelines and Psychosocial Rehabilitation principles and values. We believe that Recovery is the personal process that people with mental health conditions experience in gaining control, meaning and purpose in their lives. Recovery involves different things for different people.

    For some, recovery means the complete absence of the symptoms of mental illness. For others, recovery means living a full life in the community while learning to live with ongoing symptoms. Psychosocial rehabilitation services and supports are collaborative, person directed, and individualized. We focus on working alongside individuals to develop skills to access resources needed to live their best life, including life skills, work, learning, wellness, leisure and community participation.
