Recovery Colleges are innovative learning centres where people gain knowledge and develop new skills; however, they are so much more than that. Recovery Colleges open the door to a deeper understanding of one another and foster a culture of hopefulness that reveals new possibilities and opportunities for individuals. They are the heart of an organization where people are engaged and contributing, where they find new avenues of personal discovery, and where energy and spirit thrive.
“A Recovery College can be described as a unique learning centre where people with lived experience of mental health issues, peers, family members and mental health professionals use their knowledge and experience to work collaboratively and on equal terms to co-develop and co-deliver courses on a range of topics that support well-being and recovery.” (Perkins, Repper, Rinaldi, & Brown, 2012)
