Event Description

Se rétablir (Recovery) is a project that Lisa Mandel has been working on for several years with the concept of mental health recovery. It will be published in 2022. Everyone deals with mental health, and sometimes, it can play tricks on us. Recovering is the notion of living a happy and fulfilling life with a mental disorder. It teaches us that recovery is not about healing our mental health, but about living with it. Recovery is also a lifetime of work: getting to know one’s disorder (again), understanding it, taming it, finding support, regaining one’s decision-making power… This book recounts stories of those directly affected by mental health. Available in French and English, Romain’s experience with hearing voices proves that we are not solely defined by our neurodivergence, and that with the right support, we can overcome it. This project is also a tool to fight stigmatization and preconceived notions.
