Recovery Star

The promotion of the Recovery Star by clinical teams 

The Star is being used by many Mental Health Trusts as a tool for optimising individual recovery and gaining the information to create recovery-focused Care Plan.  The Star Chart is co-developed by the service user and the staff member in partnership and covers 10 life domains.  These are: 

  • Managing mental health
  • Self care
  • Living skills
  • Social networks
  • Work
  • Relationships
  • Addictive behaviour
  • Responsibilities
  • Identity and self esteem
  • Trust and hope

The Outcomes Star can also be used as a method of collecting quality and performance data (PROMs).  In some regions, such as Manchester, it is also being used as a commissioning tool.  

It is proposed that the Recovery Star becomes a standard assessment, monitoring and care planning tool within clinical teams.
