Learn together for better mental health
Mindspace Recovery College is like any other college where people come together to learn and share. The difference is that at Mindspace, our learning is delivered by people with lived experience and professional experience of mental ill health.
The Recovery College is for anyone over the age of 16. Information about our Young People’s Recovery College can be found here.
Who is the Recovery College for?
Our main focus is on people with a personal experience of mental health. However, if you are a carer, friend or relative of someone experiencing mental health and think one of our courses could be of interest to you, please get in touch.
