If you would like to learn how to improve your own mental health or to support someone who does, Solent Recovery College offer you the opportunity to learn about recovery and feel inspired to take control of your life.
Taught in a classroom setting and now online via Zoom, students can learn practical skills for living with on-going symptoms and learn how to get the best from mental health services in a safe and confidential space. Our courses aren’t therapy; they’re an opportunity to learn new skills in an educational environment.
All of our sessions are designed in partnership between Solent Mind’s Peer Trainers, Adult Mental Health staff from Solent NHS Trust and with support of the University of Portsmouth, allowing those with lived experience of a mental health issue to share their experiences and skills side by side with mental health professionals.
Our courses are suitable for anyone living in the PO1 to PO6 postcode area that are wanting to know how to better manage their wellbeing.
We also welcome those who are supporting someone else, as a loved one, a carer, a social worker or any other kind of healthcare professional.
