Recovery College is an educational approach to helping people with lived experience of mental health issues take control and become an expert in their own wellbeing. https://www.therecoverycollege.co.uk/what-is-recovery/4-what-is-a-recovery-college
Since 2009 over 85 locations have been established in the UK and the movement has also spread to other countries. In Canada, the Canadian Mental Health Association has partnered with Ontario Shores to build a network of Recovery Colleges.
Recovery Colleges (also known as Discovery Colleges) approach a wide range of mental health and wellness topics in series or “one and done” sessions. The sessions themselves are co-created and lead by peers, supporting both learning and employment opportunities.
