Free Educational Courses

Learners at a Recovery Academy CourseThe Trust’s Recovery Academy provides a range of free educational courses for people with mental health and substance misuse problems, their families and carers as well as health care professionals.

All of our courses focus on supporting people with their recovery and promote good health and wellbeing. They're useful if you are looking to increase your knowledge and understanding of mental health, improve your mental wellbeing, or simply want to learn something new.

The courses are co-written and co-delivered by professionals and people with mental health or substance misuse problems in order to recognise with equal importance both professional expertise and lived experience and promote our philosophy of shared learning.

Registering with the Recovery Academy two years ago was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Not only have I gained a lot of knowledge and understanding around mental health from the many courses I have been on. It has also helped with my confidence, mental wellbeing and making connections with like-minded people.
