Stockton Hall’s Recovery College
Stockton Hall’s Recovery College is constantly developing and over the last two years, has had more than 350 course places signed up for and over 250 people enrolled. The planning and development of the college is taken care of by the recovery lead, patients and staff. Collaboratively, we developed a logo and tagline and decided on the whereabouts of the college and the decoration. We were very well supported by other disciplines, helping us to make sure that we had everything we needed.
Every month of the staff induction and staff update training, our recovery lead and a patient deliver a presentation to teach new staff about the Recovery College, its aims and its successes so far.
Overall, the Recovery College aims to provide further opportunities for patients to improve their wellbeing through education and skills development workshops.
