Recovery to Practice Pledge We are committed to shifting the paradigm of our professions to ensure the realization of a recovery oriented system of care that will stand as a new beacon of hope for persons with, or at risk for, behavioral health conditions and their families. A transformed system of care will be based on the core beliefs that these conditions can be prevented, that services and supports can be effective, that people can and do recover, and that communities benefit from including and valuing the contributions of all of their members. The central mechanism for the provision of recovery-oriented behavioral health care is the safe, trusting, and empathic relationship practitioners cultivate with the people they serve.

APNA is one of five national participants in a SAMHSA initiative to transform the concepts of recovery from a set of beliefs to recovery-oriented practices. As part of this five-year project, psychiatric nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and peer specialists researched current activities in recovery-oriented care and developed strategies on how best to implement recovery components into mental health provider education and practice. APNA collaborated with consumers and psychiatric mental health nursing leaders to promote recovery and to develop curriculum and training materials to increase nursing knowledge of recovery-oriented care and how it translates into nursing practice.
