Whether you use mental health services in Lincolnshire, support someone who does, work within them or just want to find out more, we believe everyone can learn something to help someone they know progress on their recovery journey.

We want to give everyone the opportunity to learn together, to share experiences and knowledge and to participate not as a patient, carer or a member of staff, but simply as a student.

At the Recovery College we use an educational based approach to help people recognise and develop their personal resourcefulness and awareness in order to become experts in their self-care, make informed choices and do the things they want to in life.

We aim to:

  • Enable you to take back control of your life
  • Use our courses as a route to recovery
  • Improve your overall experience of mental health services
  • Share your recovery journey with you giving you hope that you can move on
  • Show you that you can have a fufilling life, with or without on-going symptoms
  • Open up opportunities which you may have thought were unavailable to you
  • Educate supporters of people who access mental health and social care services in Lincolnshire on recovery principles

All our courses are co-designed and co-delivered by experts with lived experience of mental ill health, peer trainers and expert health professionals.

What's on offer

This course opened opportunities and empowered me to be in control of my illness in ways I never thought were possible. I now have hope for the future.  The session was liberating, fun, creative and inspiring.  I’ve had an amazing few weeks. Challenging and enlightening.
