The Tidal Model of Mental Health Recovery has contributed to the transformation of nursing practice at the Royal Ottawa Hospital (ROH), a psychiatric and mental health facility in Ontario, Canada. Ten commitments affirm the core values of the Tidal Model. These commitments guide person-centred, collaborative, strength-based practice and they facilitate Tidal teaching. In this paper we illustrate fidelity to the values, principles and processes of the model and the commitments while implementing the model. We share how some of the commitments are realized in our Tidal teaching and provide examples of successes and challenges.
