Resumé

The Illness Management and Recovery program (IMR) is developed to support people with severe mental illnesses in their recovery-process. The theory behind the program highlight the importance of helping people develop tailored illness management skills which will help achieve personal and clinical recovery. However, little is known about participants' experience with IMR in relation to their recoveryprocess. The aim of the present study is to describe the participants’ lived experience with IMR, explore whether they experienced changes, and examine how these changes related to their recovery during or after their participation in IMR. A Qualitative study. The participants’ experience with the IMR program in relation to their recovery unveiled three main themes; “Social connection with other IMR-group members’, ‘In IMR, we talked about our everyday lives with mental illness’ and ‘In IMR we learned about recovery as a personal experience’.
