What does recovery mean?

We use the term ‘recovery’ to describe your personal journey and life experience as an individual working towards having a meaningful and satisfying life.

What is a Recovery College?

A Recovery College is a course of workshops, which aim to increase awareness and understanding of recovery and what it means to that person.

Courses aim to improve health and wellbeing and provide education and skills development opportunities through workshops on a range of subjects.

Courses are developed and delivered by people with life experience of mental illness, physical illness or learning disabilities, alongside health professionals.
