Utilizing new methods for understanding recovery can help us develop more inclusive
definitions, measurements, and services for survivors of suicide attempts. This workshop will center psychiatric justice in the recovery experience. Psychiatric justice refers to the proactive reinforcement of policies, practices, attitudes and actions that produce equitable power, access, opportunities, treatment, impacts and outcomes for people living with
mental health conditions, their loved ones, and their allies. Throughout history, the mental health system has criminalized and pathologized suicide attempt survivors, and in many ways continues to systematically exclude, punish, and discriminate against them.
