-------------------------------The challenge for  the Humber Recovery College & mental health services is to assist people in this journey. This requires us to move beyond a narrow focus on symptom reduction to helping people to rebuild lives that they find satisfying, meaningful and valued.


-------------------------------The Humber Recovery & Wellbeing College challenges discrimination and stigma wherever it exists within our own services or the broader community


----------------------------The Humber Recovery & Wellbeing College supports and empowers individuals to make their own choices about how they want to lead their lives and acknowledges choices need to be meaningful and creatively explored. It supports individuals to build on their strengths and take as much responsibility for their lives as they can as well as ensuring that there is a balance between duty of care and support for individuals to take positive risks and make the most of new opportunities


------------------------------------------------------------------Recovery is a personal journey of discovery. It involves making sense of, and finding meaning in, what has happened; becoming an expert in your own self-care; building a new sense of self and purpose in life; discovering your own resourcefulness and possibilities and using these, and the resources available to you, to pursue your aspirations and goals


-------------------------------------------------------------------The Humber Recovery & Wellbeing college knows that  recovery is not necessarily about cure but is about having opportunities for choices and living a meaningful, satisfying and purposeful life, and being a valued member of the community. The college accepts that recovery outcomes are personal and unique for each individual and go beyond an exclusive health focus to include an emphasis on social inclusion and quality of life. It empowers individuals so they recognise that they are at the centre of the care they receive
