Person-centred care approach is considered to have deep roots in clinical practice and historically have been a major segment of both Western and Eastern medicine approach. Person-centred practice approaches have been provided a significant profile in the previous 60 years and presume specific importance as of now along with the proceedings towards personalised medications (Stuart, 2017). NSW, 2021, consider this approach as it takes into account every person’s age, life experience, culture, gender, language, heritage, beliefs as well as identity. Person-centred approach is based on strength of patient, where clients are acknowledged as the health professionals in their life specifically focuses on their ability, and any assistance they require on it. International support is there for person-centred clinical approaches by the side of World Health Organization (WHO). Person-centred care has significant importance in psychiatric setting. For example, mental health sectors has adopted an approach known as biopsychological approach is inherently person-centred. The main reason for adapting this approach is mainly due to having association of biopsychological determinants of an individual with both development and progression of mental health disorders (Stuart, 2017). However, despite its’ importance in psychiatric setting, psychiatry has a prolonged history of being criticised specifically due to its’ focus on classifications of disorders that are currently seen as dehumanising individuals and marking them as deviant while significantly avoiding major aspects of some subjective experiences of ethnicity, culture, trauma and political oppression. According to current evidences, even today, in many segments of the world individuals with psychological health illnesses are poorly resourced in comparison with physical health services.

The main objective of this study is to discuss the importance of person centred care and recovery oriented practice in individuals with psychiatric individuals.
