Who is Recovery Education for?

Within our communities there will be people with experience of mental health challenges, people who care about those with mental health challenges, staff members who provide mental health services and people have an interest in the area of mental health.

Recovery Education can provide people with a shared space to learn with, and from, others in a non-judgmental, accepting and encouraging environment where challenges are explored in a positive way.

For families, it can be an opportunity to reduce isolation and stigma while increasing knowledge, communications and coping skills. It can create a learning environment where both people who use services, and those who provide them, experience a different kind of relationship. This environment challenges unhelpful practice, attitudes, behaviour and prejudices of mental health so that people with lived experience of mental health challenges can feel safe, welcome, valued and accepted.

For staff, it can provide opportunities to learn new ways of supporting individuals and families affected by mental health challenges, and to find better ways to support their own mental health and wellbeing.
