All of our courses are friendly and welcoming and available to everyone with an open referral to Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
Carers, Family, Friends and Loved Ones

Co-production in our college
We aim to break down the barriers between ‘us’ and ‘them’ by having our courses co-produced and co-delivered wherever possible by people with lived experience of mental health challenges (Peer Trainers) and people with experience by profession.
