The approach they developed, instead, promotes taking control of ones person-led mental health care. It challenged the prescriptive frameworks and attitudes while fighting for rights protection/advocacy and support of others in similar situations. This approach is now championed by progressive mental health teams as a quality, holistic approach to good mental health care.
Moving away from the clinical/medical model, the recovery approach is about crafting a meaningful life for yourself, reaching goals as defined by you, recognizing that mental health recovery is a journey and so is not about ‘getting better’. In the recovery community, people from all backgrounds are encouraged to share their experiences and support others going through similar things.
We aim to provide an accessible and inclusive learning environment for all our students at all our venues, which are wheelchair friendly. Please let us know in advance of attending your course if you have additional needs and we will do our best to support you.
Some courses may require a certain level of ability or means to engage, but these will be explained within individual course descriptions and on enrollment.
