The Recovery Promotion Fidelity Scale (RPFS) was developed to evaluate the extent to which public mental health agencies in Hawai'i incorporate recovery principles into their services and operations. The project progressed through two phases using concept mapping and expert review methods to generate scale items and identify dimensions of recovery that were used as scale domains. The resultant measure consists of 12 items organized around five recovery domains. This paper describes the development of the RPFS, illustrating how public mental health stakeholders, particularly persons in recovery, can be involved in efforts toward making a system of care more recovery oriented.
