Recovery Colleges offer educational courses about mental health and recovery which are designed to increase students’ knowledge and skills and to help them feel more confident in self-management of their own mental health and well-being.

For a person, with lived experience of mental ill health, this may help them to take control and become an expert in their own well-being and recovery and move on with their life despite their mental health challenges. This will hopefully help them to achieve or work towards whatever is meaningful in their lives.

We are currently designing and developing a Recovery College for North Tyneside, in consultation and co-production with volunteers, professionals and service users.  Courses and workshops are coming soon!

Help to shape North Tyneside Recovery College

We currently want to hear from:

Potential students: We want to hear about your ideas, opinions, likes and needs to help us create courses that serve you, as an individual, and our wider community

Volunteers: Have you lived experience? Are you a professional or training for a professional qualification? Would you like to volunteer to facilitate a course?

There will be volunteering opportunities around administration and co-facilitation too such as assisting with the enrolment process, engaging with people around their areas of interest, assisting trainers and collecting feedback.

If you are interested in finding out more and helping to shape this valuable service, please contact Ali Donkin at VODA.
