The recovery concept has taken hold among stakeholders involved in the treatment of mental illness—consumers, providers, advocacy groups, and policy makers. In the lead article in this issue, Ware and colleagues remind us that attention to recovery, as well as its meaning, focus, and measurement, has changed, often dramatically, over the past 40 years. From an initial concern with symptom reduction and rehospitalization rates, "outcomes" were transformed into concepts and measures surrounding quality of life. The focus on quality of life was waylaid by fiscal problems. Now, the recovery umbrella—or "procovery," a term coined by Kathleen Crowley—brings back into focus ideas such as partnership, empowerment, and integrated services and adds moral and social concerns, such as hope, as critical outcomes. In short, this movement says that a better life is possible for people with serious mental illness and that systems of care should be prepared to help them pursue it.
