The activity that suits you

Supporting people finding a suitable activity to engage in during recovery

Recovering and rehabilitating after an addiction or a mental illness is an intensive process both mentally and physically. A rollercoaster ride with many ups and downs, having an immense effect on your daily routine, your social life as well as your future prospects. Engaging in meaningful daily activities works as a catalyst in the process of recovery. Mental health care institutions and social organizations offer a broad range of such 'activations' that people in recovery can attend.

There is no shortage in activating activities but the amount of people attending is disappointing, which is why Reframing Studio was challenged by Pink Donut to develop a vision on the meaning of ‘activation’, followed by a series of concepts that would adress the true concerns of people in recovery.
