Abstract:Objectives. Much has been known about clinical and personal recovery. However, there is not much research on the meaning that chronic psychiatric patients have about recovery. The purpose of this qualitative study is to gain more insight in this and using this knowledge to develop new therapies for this group of patients. The research question is: What significance grant patients with chronic psychiatric illness to recovery? Methods. Nine chronic psychiatric patients have participated in Photo Voice. Prior to the participation in Photo Voice the participants were interviewed. These interviews were literally transcribed and analysed in an inductive way. Using grounded theory it was examined what categories emerged about the meaning of recovery. Results. Recovery appeared to gain significance in five categories. These are identity, function, feel, contacts and material support. Within categories there are several related concepts found. The concepts for the category of identity are expression of the identity and integration of the disease in live. The concepts for the category function are be able to care for themselves, to be independent, be busy, be able to work and be part of the society. The concepts for the category feel are pleasure and be hopeful. The concepts for the category contacts are friends and family, counsellors and positive relationships. The concepts for the category material support are medication and money. Conclusion. The found categories are fairly similar with the categories found in other qualitative studies. This means that recovery has a similar meaning in different countries. As the findings do not match at all, it is not yet possible to make general statements about the meaning of recovery. In the present investigation it is shown than the emphasis in the participants lies especially on contacts and things like to be able to work en to have their own home. To be able to work and to have their own home is not so easy for most patients. The therapy could place a focus on here to help patients better with such issues.
