What is recovery?
One in four of us will suffer from a mental health problem at some time in our lives.
Being diagnosed with mental illness can be very frightening. Sometimes people can lose confidence in themselves and feel very alone and scared.
But it doesn't have to be this way. Recovery is possible for everyone.
In mental health, recovery is the process of rebuilding a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life with a diagnosis of mental health problems.
Recovery is a uniquely personal journey and can mean differnt things to different people.
As the journey is so personal and individual, no-one can tell you what you need to do. Many of the courses we offer will be of help, but over time you will work out, with support, what skills and learning is most important for your recovery.
Recovery often starts with the feeling of hope and our trainers are inspirational and skilled at embodying the principles of recovery. 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 and discovering your own resourcefulness.
