Focused Recovery Plans
Focused Recovery Plans are nonregulatory documents that describe, justify, and schedule the research and management actions necessary to recover a listed species. They are a crucial component of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and must be prepared with a variety of stakeholders including federal, state, tribal, local governmental and non-governmental entities, and interested parties within the species’ range.
A recovery-oriented approach focuses on promoting hope, personal goal setting and social inclusion and community participation. It supports people to define their own needs and goals, recognize their strengths and preferences, overcome challenges and promote positive risk-taking in a way that is responsive to their circumstances and situations. It involves partnerships between people with lived experience, mental health professionals and other service providers for an integrated level of care that includes a peer component.

It is a philosophy of care that challenges the traditional views about a person’s experience with mental illness which impose limitations on them and their capabilities, interests and dreams. It aims to empower people to live their lives as best they can by helping them look beyond their experiences, to find meaning and purpose in their lives and their relationships and to achieve their goals, aspirations and dreams. This is an important part of the recovery model and a departure from the medicalisation of mental illness, which can create limited expectations and rely on coercive practices. It is also a philosophy of care that can be applied across the spectrum of prevention, treatment and support services.
