    Abstract

    The independent research study presents a literature review that critically analyses the positive role that religiousness may play in the recovery of individuals diagnosed with severe mental illness (SMI). After gathering literature using databases and library resources, the author utilised the TAPUPA tool as a means of selecting relevant literature for the purpose of this review. The study focuses on the difficulties in defining what recovery is from SMI; the role that religion may play in the varied experiences of those recovering from SMI and finally the barriers that professionals face in relation to integrating religiousness into the recovery of service users they support.
    The study recommends that further research be carried out to focus on finding a clearer definition of what recovery is from a SMI, the views of service users in relation to how professionals can support them in their recovery in relation to religion, and how barriers can be removed so that professionals feel equipped to discuss or advise in relation to religiousness.
