Illness Management And Recovery

The Illness Management and Recovery (IMR) approach was originally developed in order to help clients with schizophrenia or major mood disorders learn how to manage their illnesses more effectively in the context of pursuing personal goals. An IMR program helps clients set meaningful goals, acquire information and skills to develop more control over psychiatric disorders and make progress towards personal recovery. IMR is designed for nearly anyone who experiences symptoms related to a serious mental illness. Research and educational materials cover four specific areas of symptoms: schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder and major depression.

In order to motivate clients to learn how to better manage their illness and move forward in their lives, IMR begins with an exploration of what recovery means to the client, followed by the client identifying personal recovery goals to work on in the program. IMR can be provided in individual or group sessions and generally lasts between five to 12 months.

IMR Goals

– Instill hope that change is possible
– Establish personally meaningful goals
– Educate clients about mental illness and treatment options
– Develop skills for reducing relapses, dealing with stress and coping with symptoms
– Provide information about where to obtain needed resources
– Help people develop or enhance natural support systems to manage mental illness and attain goals

Key Features of IMR

– Focuses on strengths rather than problems
– Emphasizes consumer-centered recovery goals
– Mutual responsibility in planning and pursuing goals instead of “following treatment”
– Focuses on client’s context of life rather than only symptoms
– Encourages the involvement of significant others
– Emphasizes practicing skills in real-life situations

Efficacy of IMR Programs

IMR outcome studies conducted in the U.S. and Europe have produced mixed results. A recent study published in October 2016 analyzed IMR from a client perspective. Participants valued learning how to divide huge goals into attainable steps, how to recognize and prevent relapse by managing symptoms, practicing skills and talking openly about illness-related experiences. They pinpointed learning from the exchange with peers and information in the IMR textbook as particularly beneficial.
