Recovery College

Our Recovery Colleges in Surrey and North East Hampshire are designed to support people in their recovery. They help people improve their health and wellbeing through educational courses on a range of psychological, mental and physical health conditions.

The colleges are a partnership arrangement involving voluntary, NHS and local authority organisations, and existing Recovery Colleges.

All courses are run by staff from the partnership organisations and are developed and delivered alongside our Recovery Coaches who are experts by experience. They all have lived experience of mental or physical health conditions, or are supporting someone with a mental or physical health condition.

Who are the courses open to?

The Recovery College courses are open to people who live in Surrey and North East Hampshire who:

  • are aged 18 and above
  • want to improve their health and wellbeing
  • have physical and/or mental health conditions
  • are a family member or carer
  • work in voluntary and statutory organisations.
  • Where do courses take place?
  • Courses are offered in a range of community venues (such as libraries, community centres, church halls etc) across Surrey and North East Hampshire.

How much do courses cost?

    All courses are free unless a price is stated.

      What happens if not enough people enrol on a course?

        Unfortunately we can't run a course if there aren't enough attendees. We will inform you if this is the case with a course that you have booked on to.

          Will I be able to take a course if I had difficulties learning at school?

            Yes! Our courses are aimed at a range of students. Some rely on reading and writing more than others. Please contact us to discuss your individual learning needs and to discuss which courses may be most suitable. Our staff can also help you to develop a learning plan to support you.
