dc.description.abstractThis thesis is divided into five chapters. The first chapter consists of a two-part introduction. The first part of the introduction provides a critique of the prevailing diagnostic and medicalized worldview within our current mental health systems and presents evidence of a need to consider alternative approaches for understanding and working with human experiences of suffering within the field of mental health. The methodological approach for this thesis is discussed and an argument is provided for the necessity for further articulation of aspects of Community Engagement: A Collaborative Recovery Model (CEACRM). In the second part of the introduction an overview of CEACRM is provided. Chapters 2 to 4 focus on articulating important elements of CEACRM; specifically the absence of pathological labels, the presence of relational collaboration, and the presence of a naturalistic environment. Chapter 5 takes into account political considerations to provide a contextual framework for understanding potential challenges to working in nontraditional ways within the field of mental health, addresses potential implications for professionals, suggestions for future research, and concludes with reflections from the author.en_US
