AbstractThe recovery-focused competencies currently endorsed in policy emphasize collaborative relationships between mental health workers, service users, families and communities. Based on a qualitative research methodology, multi-disciplined practitioners shared their perceptions as to how mental health workers could operationalize collaborative relationships. Two community mental health centres were the setting for three focus groups, where 16 voluntary participants contributed to focused discussions. Participants discussed the pragmatics of how they work collaboratively; identifying knowledge and attitudes that underpin their practice, and elaborating on environmental influences that impact on a collaborative approach. Findings from the study recommend the practitioner role as one of advocacy and facilitation. The collaborative approach, which is inextricably related to the quality of the practitioner-service user relationship, aids sense-making for service users of their mental health experience. This requires of practitioners the qualities of openness, expression of hope, genuineness and people-first attitude that supports the building of knowledge rather than communicating it. © 2006 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
