Tracs Mental Health Recovery
A Progressive Care Pathway towards Independence
We have over thirty years’ experience in supporting the progress of individuals whose mental health is affected by personality disorder, anxiety disorder, schizophrenia, depression, mood affective disorders, self-harm behaviour, suicidal ideation, substance misuse backgrounds. Our focus is on recovery. The recovery star is integral to our assessment and care planning processes.
The recovery star enables value driven organisations to measure and summarise change across their mental health service. It maintains a focus on outcomes measurement.
It is underpinned by the assumptions that:
- Positive growth is a possible and a realistic goal for all
- The recovery tool is designed to support as well as measure the growth by focussing on people’s potential rather than their problems
- The recovery star is based on a five stage model of the process by which individuals set a goal to make changes in those areas of their life that are not working for them
- Recovery emphasises that whilst people may not have full control over their symptom, they can have full control over their lives
Our mental health services provide flexible support through its range of services which include nurse-led therapeutic services, residential care homes, transitional models with individual flatlets in a registered setting, and on to supported living in the person’s own tenancy.
Success is focussed on progress whilst guarding against relapse. Tracscare has in-depth mental health relapse planning processes.
Careful risk taking and risk management is the key to progress. Tracscare has clinically trained staff in forensic risk management and has a proven track record in supporting complex risk people along the progression pathway.
The guiding principle of recovery is HOPE – the belief that it is possible for someone with a mental illness to regain a meaningful life.

Success with the Recovery Star Model
We use the recovery star model, an outcomes-based measurement tool recognised by the Department of Health. By using the recovery star, we are able to support peoples recovery by measuring progress in areas including managing their mental health, enhancing living skills, building and maintaining social networks and building self-esteem to maximise independence.
The Recovery Star:
- Values peoples perspectives and enables empowerment and choice
- Supports recovery and social inclusion
- Is holistic, covering all the major dimensions linked to recovery
The recovery star looks at ten areas of an individuals life, with each area assessed to see where an individual is on the ‘ladder’ of each section:
- Managing mental health
- Physical health and self-care
- Addictive behaviour
- Living skills
- Social networks
- Identity and self-esteem
- Trust and hope
The people we support are able to see clear evidence of their progress and their involvement in the process, which improves motivation, enhances their skills and builds confidence.
