What is CHIME?

    At the recovery college we work within a framework called CHIME. * Working within a framework ensures we bring the principles of recovery to the learning environment and the effectiveness of what we do can be measured.  These five areas contribute to personal recovery.


    Having positive relationships and being connected with other people in a positive way.


    That recovery is possible, motivation to change, positive thinking, valuing success, having dreams and aspirations.


    Regaining a positive self and identity – not a person with mental ill health.


    Living a meaningful and purposeful life, living life, having real things to do, places to go, goals to achieve.


    Having control over their life, focusing on strengths, making decisions, taking personal responsibility.


    *  Conceptual framework for personal recovery in mental health .
