In our blog co-production group, we are keen to showcase as many different voices as possible from people who make the Nottingham Recovery College what it is. So we sat down for a chat with Ravelle-Sadé, a former student at the college. We asked about her experience at the college – this conversation is in part 1 of this blog post. However, some of you may know Ravelle-Sadé from her poetry which she performed at a Graduation Day last year, so we were also keen to find out more about how her poetry has helped her in her recovery journey.
