What Is A Recovery College?
A Recovery College is a course of workshops that have been specifically designed and co-produced by those with lived experience; to support wellbeing, resilience and aid recovery. The courses are co-delivered by people who have personal experience of mental health problems, usually alongside a mental health professional.
What Is Meant By ‘Co-Production’?
We use the term co-production because courses are produced collaboratively, between individuals with lived experience and clinicians, utilising their collective knowledge and experience. This approach champions each member of the co-production team as an equal partner. Working together in this way is hugely beneficial for all involved; everyone contributes, everyone learns and the outcome is relevant, impactful and meaningful courses.
