In a nutshell: “This study aims to explore views held by mental health staff about factors influencing their own wellbeing and that of service users with psychosis.” “Staff stated a recovery orientation in principle, but struggled to focus on service user strengths in practice. A stronger emphasis in clinical practice on amplifying strengths to foster self-management is indicated, and staff may need support to achieve this emphasis, e.g. through specific interventions and involvement of peer support workers.”
