“Despite what went wrong, what did the team members manage to do well, and how did they do that, and how can they do more of that?”

“Despite whatever the critical incident, tragedy, horrible thing that happened (…) there are still opportunities for someone to achieve their best hopes, for something different to happen, for something to be better, for a preferred outcome to occur.”

“For someone even just to walk in the door of a mental health service, they want something to be different. To walk in the door, you don’t come to be told how many more problems you have. (…) the person comes for something do be different.”

Michele Orr
