Schizoaffective Disorder Recovery Process

The Recovery Process:
Moving Forward

Mental health recovery is an ongoing process—not a single outcome—where you work to achieve your goals. Each person’s recovery experience is unique.

The recovery process can include treatment like counseling and rehabilitation therapy. These programs—combined with taking medication as your doctor prescribed, plus living and eating healthy—may help you be able to work towards your recovery goals.

Your personal plan

By making a personalized plan, you have the best chance of living a life that is meaningful to you. Following your treatment plan means you’re taking an active role in your own recovery process.

Keep track of how you feel

Remember that the recovery process takes time, and it's okay to go one step at a time. If you notice any changes in how you are feeling or any change in symptoms, contact your doctor as soon as possible. Learning to recognize the early warning signs of relapse is key.

Need extra support?

It’s normal to feel overwhelmed in the recovery process. Joining a support group with other people living with schizoaffective disorder may help.
