The Recovery College

When we think about the NHS many of us think first of hospitals, doctors, nurses, sickness and disease.  In mental health services the notion of recovery turns all of that on its head and challenges us simply to think about human beings who have real needs and real lives.

Our Recovery College is a college like no other, delivering a wide range of free courses and learning programmes for those who use mental health services, care for someone who does, or who work in services.

Everything is designed around you, from course content to the learning environment. To assist your recovery journey, improve your wellbeing, and give you control over your life and symptoms. Helping you recognise, develop and make the most of your talents so you achieve your goals and ambitions.

Giving you opportunities to build a rewarding and meaningful life beyond illness.

Delivered in a relaxed environment by people with lived and professional experience to achieve an enhanced learning experience. That’s the Recovery College. Helping you become all you want to be and do all you want to do. Your Future, Your Way.
