This chapter focuses on Chinese mental health service users in the UK and aims to illustrate how structural inequalities shape their recovery journeys. It starts with a discussion of the Recovery Approach with which the research critically engaged. It then introduces the diversity within the Chinese community in the UK. It selects two stories from the research to shed light on how, for UK Chinese people, inequalities such as class, gender, and ethnicity intersect at national and transnational levels, and impact on the way recovery journeys unfold. Such inequalities contribute to their distress and ill-health in the first place and could hinder their recovery. The implications for community development work with Chinese communities are then discussed.

Keywords:   Chinese mental health services, inequality, mental health policy, Recovery Approach, UK Chinese community, community development
