Learning will be carried out by a variety of organisations from across the region. The sessions will offer opportunities to better understand mental health challenges, the process of recovery and the hope that taking control of your life and self-management can bring.
The classes on offer range from short one-off sessions to more involved learning leading to SQA Professional Development Awards. A Recovery Facilitator can help you to decide which courses are right for you. Together we can draw up a plan to assist your recovery journey.
