The Trust has developed an exciting new mental health initiative, The Recovery College - aiming to support people on their journey to recovery. To learn more, visit the Recovery College website at http://www.therecoverycollege.co.uk/
The principles of the Recovery College are to enable people with mental health challenges to have the same opportunities in life as everyone else. The aim is to support people on their personal journey towards a meaningful and satisfying life, where hope, opportunity and choice are the key elements.
The college aims to help people to become experts in their own self-care, and enable family, friends, carers and staff to better understand mental health so that they can best help people towards recovery.
Courses are co-produced with users, carers and professionals working in partnership.
Progress to Date
Mick Morrow has been appointed as The Recovery College Lead and Debbie Thorp has been appointed as the College Administrator.
There have been a number of development workshops over the past 12 months and we are currently in the process of recruiting volunteers and experts by experience to a number of roles in the College.
Successful applicants will then undertake a training programme to equip them for the next stages of the College's development.
We are holding some taster sessions in late October and November 2015 with a view to developing a prospectus for the launch of the College in April 2016. For more information on these please call 0121 543 4060.
