Mental Health Recovery

If you have been affected by mental illness you will be keen to recover good mental health as quickly as possible.

We really encourage you to look for a Recovery College near you. You may not have heard of them before, although some have been around for a number of years.  We suggest you do a search for your nearest one to see what it has to offer. They do vary quite a bit, but all should have at their heart, learning about how to recover from mental illness.

We work with a number of organisations who provide mental health training and recovery sessions local to us in Berkshire.

Training we provide:

  • What is Recovery?
  • Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP)
  • Happiness IS part of your recovery
  • 5 Ways to Wellbeing & Good Mental Health

Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) - What is it?

Mary Ellen Copeland and her colleagues devised the Wellness Recovery Action Plan around 20 years ago in America to support people recovering from mental illness. Although that is where its roots are, WRAP is a wonderful tool for anyone anywhere to use to live better lives and to be resilient when life throws the inevitable curved ball. It was devised for those recovering from mental ill health but has a lot to offer anyone recovering from, or living with, a physical health condition too.
