Our Recovery College brings together two sets of expertise - professional and experience - in a non-stigmatising college environment. All of the courses provided at the college are designed to contribute towards wellbeing and recovery. We want to give you the chance to share your experience of mental health or physical health challenges and teach on the courses, with the intention of inspiring hope and embodying the principles of recovery.
We provide an innovative shared learning environment for service users (primary and secondary care), carers, supporters, trust staff, staff from other organisations and the general public. Due to using mixed interactive methods, tapping into our own resourcefulness as learners, and allowing space for reflection we create together a perfectly safe and open-minded place to learn from each other.
The aspirational principles of hope, opportunity and control with co-production elements mirror a citizenship movement where we all have a part to play. Over time we change social values to become inclusive, accepting, more tolerant, less afraid of the unknown and more human.
We all could be affected by mental well-being concerns and/or suffer from physical health issues at any point in time in our lives, which can take their toll on how we feel.
