The report sets forth principals for advancing a culture of engagement in mental health care, including:
1. Communicating hope rather than hopelessness;
2. Supporting individuals, whenever possible, to be active participants in their own care;
3. Focusing on the strengths of individuals rather than their deficits;
4. Including family and other close supporters as essential partners in care and recovery; and
5. Recognizing the role of community, culture, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity, age, language and economic status in recovery.
