Term 1 2018 Workshops and Programs – Western Sydney Recovery College
The Recovery College model is an innovative approach to inclusive education and recovery within the community and mental health sector. Courses delivered by Recovery College are co-produced, which means the content is co-designed and co-delivered by people with lived experience and mental health professionals. Recovery College forms a collaborative, community driven model of adult education that supports people in their recovery journey, and increases knowledge, skills and awareness of mental health within the community.
All our workshops have been subsidised by One Door Mental Health, meaning they are free to attend for those with lived experience of mental health concerns, whether consumers, carers, family or friends, as well as workers and volunteers, who live or work in the Western Sydney area.
