Abstract

While mental health (MH) services are expected to support client recovery, very little is known about services provided by MH teams in relation to this goal. This study explored relationships between a comprehensive collection of team effectiveness variables and the perspectives of MH professionals regarding the recovery orientation of their teams. A model developed by path analysis revealed eight team-related variables that were significantly and positively associated with recovery-oriented teams: primary care versus specialized MH services; greater proportions of clients with severe mental disorders or with suicide ideation on caseloads; knowledge sharing and knowledge production among team members; team climate; work role performance; and trust in coworkers. Results underline the importance of building knowledge and professional competence on MH teams, and the need for a positive team climate that offers flexibility and innovation for addressing the complex needs of people in MH recovery living in the community.
