We believe that with the right support and help people with mental health issues can and do recover and live meaningful and purposeful lives of their own choosing. Since 2003 we have actively promoted this idea and sought to put recovery and wellbeing at the heart of mental health provision.
What we offer:
We provide recovery education and opportunities, and help services to better engage with recovery communities. We find creative ways to help people (both service providers and people with mental illness) to tell their story in ways that are helpful to them and useful to others walking a similar path. We work closely with the Devon Recovery Learning Community to provide free, open-access recovery courses. We provide training and consultancy to services and community organisations.
We are currently working remotely and we can provide support to anyone based in Devon.
How to get support:
