In recent years there is an increasing interest in Personal Recovery and in Well-being. What is the background of these concepts? What are the differences in their meaning and where is the overlap? What does this mean for scientific research and what are the consequences for implementation in practice? You will answer these questions by conducting a systematic review of the literature and analyzing the commonalities and differences between the two approaches. 


Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a student who is interested in positive mental health issues, and in the origins of these concepts.
