About the college

Who are our courses for?

Recovery is about a personal journey towards a meaningful and


satisfying life, towards living as well as possible, whatever symptoms or
difficulties are present. 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.

Our courses are free of charge and open to:




Our 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 who have experienced mental health difficulties working alongside
trainers from the mental health professions.

People who use SLaM services


Supporters (carers, family and friends) of the above
People who have been discharged from SLaM services within
the last six months
Supporters (carers, family and friends) of the above
Volunteers and peer supporters working with SLaM
SLaM staff (not students)

You dont need to be referred by anybody to enrol at the college and you can
choose whichever courses interest you or suit your needs.
All wed 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, so if you
cant attend for any reason, please contact the Recovery College office as soon
as possible so your place can be offered to someone on the waiting list.
Please note that you also need to be aged 16 or over to come to any of
our courses.

Need our help in any way?


Additional support

If you have more specific access requirements, please tell us in the space
provided on the enrolment form.

If you feel that you need additional help in getting to a class or in fully
taking part, please let us know in the space provided on the enrolment
form. We understand there can be things which make getting to and
participating in education more difficult such as:





Can a carer, friend, or family member come to the


course to support me?
Absolutely, but we would ask that they take an active part and book onto
the course by enrolling as a student too.

Feeling worried or stressed about being in groups and talking


Having difficulty getting to places on time or using public transport
Problems with concentration
Dyslexia or other learning challenges
Vision or hearing impairments
Mobility difficulties or pain that prevents you from sitting comfortably

Do you provide refreshments?


Like any other college, we do not provide students with free food and
drink. Most, if not all, of the venues we use offer tea and coffee, although
sometimes these may need to be purchased (depending on the venues
facilities). We are not able to provide lunch, and it is advisable that you
bring something with you if the course lasts all day just in case the shops
are a distance away from the venue.

We will do our best to make it as easy as possible for you to take part.
Volunteer travel buddies may be available to support you to attend our
workshops and courses.

Remember: our courses are free of charge!

Course materials

Will you pay my travel costs?

Please tell us in advance if you will require course materials in a more


accessible format (i.e. in large print, on a coloured background or in a
particular font you find easy to read) and we will do our best to meet
your request.

Similarly we cannot reimburse you for your travel costs.

I still have questions. Is there someone I can talk to?

Disabled access

Of course! If you would like to chat to us about these or any other issues,
please call our office on 020 3228 3643.

We try to ensure that the venues we use for courses and workshops are
fully accessible and have disabled toilet facilities.
