  ​​​​​​​​Community Initiatives


Research has shown that when recovery-oriented systems and services are offered to individuals with lived experience of mental health problems and illnessit leads to better health, social and employment outcomes, including reduced hospitalization and emergency visits, and increased likelihood of successful goal achievement related to employment and housing. Individuals with lived experience, family and staff also show greater levels of satisfaction in recovery-oriented mental health systems (Manitoba Health, 2015). 

In response to this, and in order to address this priority within our region, the Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority has developed a regional Recovery Champions Committee. Under the leadership of the regional health authority, this committee has approximately 10 active members with 50% of its membership being individuals with lived experience and or family members/natural supports. The remaining 50% of active membership are staff and partners of the Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority Mental Health Program. 

The purpose of the regional Recovery Champions Committee is to provide a forum for Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority mental health services and community stakeholders, including individuals with lived experience of mental illnesses and their family members or natural supports, to collaboratively plan, recommend, develop, implement, coordinate, and evaluate actions of the regional mental health system through a recovery-oriented lens. 

This group of people is a motivated and spirited committee that is dedicated to providing leadership and championing of recovery-based principles and practices to further assist in influencing and achieving system transformation of the region’s mental health system.
