Recovery College for All

Welcome to Recovery College for All. Recovery College for All believes that learning together makes us stronger. Recovery College for All offers a range of co-produced sessions that are designed and facilitated by individuals with experience of living with mental health difficulties alongside healthcare professionals. All our sessions are open to BSMHFT service users, their families, carers and supporters, Trust colleagues and Trust members over the age of 18.

Defining features of our recovery college:

  • You don’t need formal qualifications to attend, just choose the courses or sessions that interest you
  • Our sessions are co-designed and co-facilitated by those with lived and professional experience of mental health challenges
  • We operate on educational principles (rather than clinical diagnoses or symptom management)
  • We have a mixed learning environment – service users, families and carers and Trust staff learn together
  • All our sessions are quality assured and are recovery-focused
  • Access to trained Peer Support Workers to support you with your recovery college goals
  • Hope – continuing presence of the possibility to pursue personal goals
    Opportunity – to build a life beyond mental illness
    Choice – knowing that we have options and a sense of control over our lives
