IMR is an evidence-based practice developed for people with severe mental illnesses. It is based on the principles of recovery to help people set individual meaningful goals for their lives and gain illness self-management skills and thereby contribute to their individual recovery-process. IMR can be given individually or in groups, once a week for 10-12 months.
In this project the investigators will implement Illness Management and Recovery (IMR) in mental health services. The implementation strategy are carried out according to the IMR toolkits which include informational and training materials, implementation recommendations, and fidelity scales to facilitate use of the model in routine practices. The implementation process and outcome will be of main focus.
The study has an observational prospective cohort design. 30 therapists from 9 different mental health services will be trained and supervised in IMR. The investigators aim to enrol 40 patients. The primary outcome is therapists' fidelity to the model and organisational implementation outcome. Secondary outcomes are patients' level of functioning and hope.
