Several subjective and objective indicators mark recovery from psychiatric disabilities. One of these markers, frequently mentioned in the literature, is autonomous decision-making of a disabled person. The purpose of this article is to show when personal autonomy is and when is not congruent with functional recovery from a psychiatric disability. The author also provides examples of clinical interventions, which are intended to help a disabled person move both toward greater autonomy, and toward improved functioning in a daily life.
