Abstract:Background. Serious mental illnesses (SMI) increase over time and are associated with a substantial burden for individuals. Therefore, new forms of treatment in the field of Psychology had to evolve in order to fit the population’s needs and especially adjust to the concept of personal recovery. Personal recovery is a concept that was already used as a theoretical ground for research purposes and is an important outcome for people with SMI. Objective. The aim of this systematic review was to identify determinants of personal recovery, to describe the characteristics of these studies, and examine what the evidence from longitudinal studies shows regarding determinants of personal recovery. Therefore, a systematic review was conducted aimed at analyzing the determinants of personal recovery within the studies. Method. A quantitative narrative review was obtained with a large pool of articles that are in line with personal recovery. The databases Web of Science (WoS), PubMed, and PsycINFO were searched for this review. The time period included all suitable articles from 2010 until 2020. In order to be suitable for this review, a minimum of two measurement points and results measured through personal recovery assessment scales had to be included. All data that were predictive for personal recovery were extracted from the studies.
