Recovery

Dialogue for Recovery is a new NMHA program, aimed at enhancing communication between doctors and patients about treatment goals, medication side-effects and other quality of life issues affecting the recovery of individuals diagnosed with serious mental illness. With a Dialogue for Recovery, consumers of mental health services and their doctors can find the right combination of medications and community support that will best serve these individuals in their recovery.

What are the components of the Dialogue for Recovery program?


NMHA developed Dialogue for Recovery to raise awareness of the need for regular communication between patients and doctors about medication side-effects. The Dialogue for Recovery program utilizes several resources to facilitate communication between patients and their doctors.

A new, user-friendly tool, called the Antipsychotic Side-effects Checklist, or ASC. ASC is designed to help patients and their doctors easily identify and communicate about medication side-effects by encouraging them to “ASC” the right questions, so they can determine which side-effects are most bothersome and whether the treatment needs to be modified.

Other program components include: a brochure and wallet card on how patients can discuss side-effects with their physicians, a physician fact sheet, a family and friends guide, and a video featuring patients building relationships with their physicians and on their road to recovery.

Program components, as well as other useful, free, downloadable resources are available at NMHA.org. Go to the Dialog for Recovery page of the NMHA website. To order or for more information please contact 800-969-NMHA (6642) or email: infoctr@nmha.org.
