About the college

Recovery College East provides a collaborative, educational learning environment and aims to convey messages of hope, empowerment and opportunity to all. It celebrates strengths and successes rather than highlighting deficits or problems.

Whether you want to develop new skills or increase your understanding of mental health challenges, you will find that the college is a relaxed, friendly place to learn with lots of support on hand if you should need it.

Who can attend?

Recovery College East offers courses to:


• Anyone over the age of 18 who has received, or is receiving, secondary services from CPFT
• Their supporters (family, friends and loved ones)
• CPFT staff, volunteers and students on placement
• Staff and those who receive services from our co-production partner organisations.


There is no fee and no entry requirements, but people need to register and enrol before attending.

How do I register and enrol on a course?

All the information about how to register and enrol is available here.
All students should fill in either the New Student Registration Form or the Returning Student Registration Form, which are available to download at the bottom of this page.

Who runs the courses?

All courses are co-produced and co-delivered, involving at least one person with lived experience of mental health challenges. The college values the expertise gained from experience equally with that derived from professional training.

What sort of courses are available?

Courses vary in length from one-off workshops to those that take place weekly for a number of weeks. Courses currently on offer come under the headings: moving forward, the road to recovery, and developing knowledge and skills. The range of courses available each term will vary as the college responds to the demands of its students.

Where are the courses held?

Courses will take place at a range of community and CPFT venues across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Recovery Stories - our publication

Some of our Recovery College East students have been involved in the publication of this fantastic new book, Road to Recovery: Our Stories of Hope.

In the book, there are some inspirational stories describing the incredible journeys people have taken on their road to recovery. We've been truly humbled putting these stories together and we hope you can experience some of that inspiration when you read them.

You can download a copy here. We now have printed versions available for you to buy that are just £5 each. If you'd like to buy a copy, you can send a cheque for £5 payable to Recovery College East to our address at the bottom of this page. Or you can pop into either of our colleagues in Cambridge or Peterborough and buy one there. Addresses for the college sites are at the bottom of this page. We hope you enjoy it! 

 

 

 

Recovery College East video

Students, partners and staff have put together this fantastic video about the college, talking about their experiences and what it means to them. Check it out below.

"Not once before or on the course were people asked about the label that is often attached to their psychiatric experiences or their medication. I was amazed and thrilled at this freeing experience. I could just be me, which gave me reassurance and strength to grow in myself and in my relationships with others."
