The thesis portfolio is divided into three parts: Part one is a systematic literature review, in which quantitative literature considering the role of relational connectedness in the recovery process for people with mental health difficulties is reviewed. A systematic search of five databases identified twelve studies in the area. A narrative synthesis of the findings is provided. Methodological quality of the area, as well as implications and directions for future research are discussed. Part two is an empirical paper which explores relational connections among care leavers. This study has an idiographic focus using semi structured interviews and employing Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. Nine care leavers took part in the study. Five super-ordinate and eighteen subordinate themes emerged from the data. These themes are discussed in the context of relational aspects of wellbeing, self-identity, emotional coping and barriers to help-seeking. Part three comprises the appendices supporting the systematic literature review and empirical papers. It also contains a reflective statement.
