Who the college is for

Recovery is about people with mental health difficulties having the same opportunities in life as everyone else. It is about a personal journey towards a meaningful and satisfying life. It is about hope, control and opportunity. It is about living as well as possible. The workshops and courses we run aim to provide the tools to make this happen, to help you become an expert in your own recovery or that of someone you care for or work with.

​The college offers a learning approach that complements the existing services provided by the Trust. Co-production is at the heart of everything we do. Every course and workshop we offer is co-designed and co-run by trainers with lived experience working alongside trainers from the mental health professions.  The courses are free of charge and open to:

  • People who use SLaM services
  • Supporters (carers, family and friends) of SLaM’s service users
  • People who have been discharged from SLaM services within the last six months and their supporters
  • Anyone working with SLaM as a volunteer or peer supporter or who is on the SLaM Involvement Register
  • SLaM staff (not including students on clinical placement)

A referral from a clinician or service is not required to enrol at the college.  As a student, you can choose which courses interest you or suit your needs.  All they  ask is that, if you do put your name down for a course, you make every effort to attend. Places for all our courses are in high demand.

Please note that you also need to be aged 16 or over to come to any of the courses.
