Community Resilience as a Recovery Method for Psychiatric Patients: A Meta-Study

Retno Lestari, Ah Yusuf

Abstract

Community resilience is the adaptive capacity of a community to respond to and recover from adversities. Through communities, psychiatric patients can recover and improve their emotional, social and thinking skills needed in everyday life. The purpose of this study is to describe the results of a meta-study of community resilience as a method for recovery process in psychiatric patients. The method in this study used several approaches of meta-study and was guided by Thorne (2006). Meta-analysis was used to compare the studies, based on 125 data sources: Science Direct, Google Scholar, Proquest Health and Medical Complete, Proquest Nursing and Allied Health Source, Proquest Psychology Journals and Proquest Science Journals from 2007 to 2017. Subsequently three common themes emerged: ‘vulnerability in the community’, ‘protecting each other’ and ‘high spirituality within community’. The first of these comprised several subthemes including feeling sad, isolated and going through hardship in life. The second theme included social resilience, economic reliance and resilience of all dimensions. The latter theme included self-protection, self-reliance and spirituality growth. Resilient communities could support a recovery process among psychiatric patients. It is recommended that health professionals in a community could promote the development of community resilience to increase wellbeing.
