Advances in housing and service programs for people with severe mental illness have enabled many to move from the streets to homes in the community. At the same time, addressing the housing needs of homeless people is not enough. The modern recovery movement in mental health, with its mantra of helping people with severe mental illness to achieve self-fulfillment and involvement in mainstream society, is important. With current advances in mental health treatment, housing, and rehabilitation, a focus on social inclusion is timely. This chapter reviews the recovery movement, the need to confront discrimination and the stigma of mental illness, evidence of social inclusion from studies of supportive housing, and examples of early treatment of psychotic disorders from the National Institute of Mental Health’s Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode (RAISE) initiative.

Keywords:   Social inclusion, recovery movement, stigma of mental illness, early treatment of psychosis, Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode, RAISE
