The Recovery College helps people through learning. Our team will work with you to give you the knowledge and skills to get on with your life, despite mental distress.
The short courses we offer are designed to show the benefits of learning about supporting your mental health and well-being by exploring ideas with like minded people before you start putting the ideas into practice.
Who is it for?
The online educational courses and resources are open to:
- People with experience of mental illness
- The family and friends of service users
- Those working in mental health
How the courses work
Courses are delivered by a tutor, alongside health professionals and volunteers with lived experience of mental health difficulties.
They are interactive, informative and give you the chance to meet with other people in similar circumstances.
Courses are usually delivered in the community in small groups of no more than 10. They usually run for two hours over a few weeks, are informal sessions and avoid too much written work and there are no tests or exams.
You can choose to attend one course or follow on to attend another depending on your interest.
