Recovery-focused mental health services has certainly become the language of the day. Most mental health services acknowledge there is some way to go before this becomes a reality. Achieving recovery-focused services is dependent on genuine partnership with people with lived experience of significant mental health challenges. This is easier said than done. Challenging the traditional ‘clinician knows best’ attitude is imperative. As the largest professional group in the mental health nursing workforce nurses are key if recovery-focused services are to become a reality. Achieving this requires a conceptually different approach to the education of nursing students.
