At the recovery college at Priory learning disability and autism services (LDAs) in Norfolk, we aim to help our patients regain confidence within their existing skills.
Patients will participate in the development of their skills alongside the engagement in their core assessment and treatment sessions. These are delivered by our multidisciplinary team (MDT) through both individual and group therapeutic treatment programmes, and supported by participation in the on-site or community-based real work opportunities (RWOs). These include employment, voluntary placements and the recovery college.
The recovery college courses that we run have been designed to enable patients to work towards their individual recovery goals and are delivered in an educational, supportive and inclusive setting.
The courses are co-produced and have proven to be a safe place to meet other patients and socialise.
