The Stages of Recovery Instrument (STORI) was developed by the University of Wollongong, Australia, as a method to measure recovery from serious mental illness.In order to realize the vision of recovery-orientated mental health services, there is a need for a model and a method of measuring recovery as the concept is described by mental health consumers. A preliminary five-stage model based on consumer accounts was developed in an earlier study by the authors. This next stage of the research program describes the development and initial testing of a stage measure which, when validated, can be used in testing that model.
