Who we are
The Recovery College combines the strengths of two sets of experience.
Peer tutors have lived experience of mental health or long term health challenges and/or experience of looking after a friend or relative with a long term health or mental health condition (being a carer). They are able to relate these experiences to topics of recovery and wellbeing, and ideally have a teaching qualification or experience of teaching adults.
Professional tutors are mental health or health professionals in the NHS, charity organisations and other mental health services. Alongside mental health or health training they have work experience in supporting people in their recovery journeys. Ideally they have a teaching qualification and/or experience of delivering training and presentations in their job.

What we do
We run co-produced recovery-focused courses in four broad areas: Recovery Journey, Mental Health Conditions, Wellbeing, and Self-development. Our courses promote hope that recovery is possible. They are lively, aspirational and interactive. We aim to empower people in practical ways by teaching them self-care tools to improve their wellbeing.
