This longitudinal study describes the effects of recovery-based training on staff knowledge and attitudes to recovery. Mental health staff (n = 101) completed the study questionnaire (the Recovery Knowledge Inventory (RKI-20) and Recovery Attitudes' Questionnaire (RAQ-16)) before training and after six months. On the RKI, significant changes between pre- and post-training scores (p < 0.01) were found. On the RAQ, the scores showed significant changes in Factors 1 (p < 0.001) and 2 (p < 0.009). The results indicate a significant difference in confidence using a recovery model of care following training suggesting that recovery-based training positively affects staff knowledge and attitudes to recovery overall.
