Welcome to the Plymouth & District Mind Recovery College
We are a local mental health charity and we have been supporting the mental health of our community for over 30 years. Our Recovery College is a place where people can learn about recovery and wellbeing in a supportive environment. It is also a place where people can think about their hopes and aspirations and explore how to overcome the barriers that can prevent them leading the life they want to live.
We are not a college in the traditional sense (there are no exams or difficult assessments!). Instead, we provide a range of services that support people to regain hope, to learn, grow, share and discuss. Our courses, workshops, support groups and counselling service will provide you with the opportunities you need to support your mental health and wellbeing.
We aim to provide a warm and safe space in which to think about and practise recovery. All our recovery services are designed for people who have lived experience of mental health challenges, supporters/carers, and people who work in services. All of our courses are also co-written by people with life experience of recovery alongside people who have clinical or health professional experience.
Equality and Diversity
We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity. This means that everyone who participates in the college is treated equally regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, mobility, religion, or beliefs.
We offer information and guidance about all our Recovery College services. We will also work with you to create a learning and development (LDP) before you start any of our courses in particular. We are dedicated to ensuring that you get the most from whatever service you access through the Recovery College.
