The Recovery College is a new type of college with the aim of improving people’s health and wellbeing.
It also provides people with physical and mental health issues across North East Hampshire and Farnham with the skills to learn how to manage their symptoms and to live meaningful and fulfilled lives.
It offers educational courses and workshops that are aimed at anyone, whether they use health services or care for someone who does.
Anyone over the age of 18 can attend a course, most of which are free of charge. They take place in community locations such as libraries or colleges, and people can register for courses themselves – they don’t need their GP to refer them.
The courses are delivered in a supportive environment. If you didn’t get on with the structure of learning at school, you will find the Recovery College a very different and positive experience.
Many courses are written and taught by people with lived experience of physical and mental health difficulties alongside professionals. The Recovery College offers a caring approach where we can all learn together.
