Nottingham Recovery College
The Nottingham Recovery College provides a range of courses to help people to develop their skills and understanding, identify their goals and ambitions and give them the confidence and support to access opportunities.
The college brings together two sets of expertise – professional and experience – in a non-stigmatising college environment with the same systems as other educational establishments. All of the courses provided at the college are designed to contribute towards wellbeing and recovery. People who share experiences of mental health or physical health challenges teach on the courses with the intention of inspiring hope and embodying principles of recovery.
The courses are designed to put people back in control of their life, helping each person to identify goals and ambitions whilst giving the confidence, skills and support to access opportunities. They are open to adults who:
- have personal experience of mental health challenges
- care about people with mental health challenges
- are a member of staff in mental health services
