Abstract:The concept of personal recovery is getting more and more attention when it comes to mental health. Slade et al. (2011) have developed a framework that includes the processes of personal recovery. They found that connectedness, hope and optimism about the future, identity, meaning in life and empowerment (CHIME) were the processes that play an important role in personal recovery. This review aims to identify experimental and observational studies with BD patients, which used personal recovery measurements. In this systematic review, the databases PsycINFO and Scopus were searched for experimental and observational studies that measure at least one of the personal recovery processes in patients with BD. A total of 759 studies was identified in the databases, of which nine measure at least one process of CHIME and therefore are included in this review. The main findings are that most of the identified studies do not use a questionnaire, which is specifically developed to measure personal recovery. Two of the interventions call themselves a recovery-focused intervention but measure at least one or two of the processes of Slade et al. (2011). The process connectedness was measured the most and was often operationalized with support from others.
