Recovery College Calderdale offers a range of courses and one off workshops with the aim of improving mental health through learning.

The courses focus on being mentally healthy, staying well and developing the knowledge and strength to overcome the challenges we can all face at times in our lives. Building our personal resilience, having confidence and self-esteem, to be able to make decisions and to believe in ourselves.

The courses are co-designed and co-delivered by people with real life experience, who work in conjunction with health professionals, education providers and trainers to share what works for them.

Courses aren’t therapy – the aim is to provide a positive learning approach in which to share knowledge and provide the space to reflect on your own health and understanding.

You are not referred to the Recovery College, simply enrol yourself for any of the courses that are of interest to you. Courses are open to all adults with personal experience and we welcome carers, supporters and professionals too.

If you are new to the college you will be invited to an induction session where you will find out more about how it works, the courses on offer and to answer any questions that you may have.
