«In conclusion, this article described family as a crucial component of recovery from severe mental illness. With this research, we strive to contribute to the ongoing shift in pathological-modeled research to focus on more positive, solutions-based scholarship, looking at how to build upon naturally-existing resources to facilitate recovery from severe mental illness. Our data indicate that family can provide important moral and practical support and can serve as a motivating force for recovery. But the data also indicate that family members can be a source of stress, lack understanding, and force their member with mental illness into the hospital against his or her will.» (p. 475)
