Recovery College

The Recovery College promotes personal recovery as a journey of discovery, supporting people to live meaningful
lives with, or without, ongoing symptoms. In response to the pandemic, the college has become a leader in innovation. Its team of peers, volunteers and staff have worked together to adapt classroom courses into more than 30 online interactive courses.

The college opened access to anyone wishing to learn more about mental health. This created opportunities for people to access support that they might have been unable to previously. When many people felt isolated, this provided a safe environment to connect with others.

The reach of the college goes beyond Norfolk and Suffolk. It launched and co-hosts a free network for Recovery Colleges across the country to share learning, which has led to a formal partnership between trusts.

Students say they are inspired by the peer tutors’ stories of overcoming mental health challenges and living a fulfilled life.
