Recovery college

The Humber Recovery and Wellbeing College uses an educational model, and focuses on people’s lived experience and personal strengths to promote mental wellbeing and challenge stigmatising attitudes.

Using a collaborative and recovery-orientated approach, we empower one another and welcome anyone over the age of 16, who has an interest in keeping themselves mentally and emotionally well, to join our courses and enrol in the workshops, regardless of whether they identify with having experienced mental health difficulties or not. Recovery College students, facilitators and volunteers with lived experience, and other mental health professionals, work together with local communities to co-productively design and deliver original and innovative workshops and courses.

We produce prospectuses with various free/low cost courses about 3 times a year. The educational courses offered(some of which are accredited) are reflective of the expertise and personal knowledge of tutors, volunteers and partners, and we aim to have a range of courses that  support people in maintaining good mental and physical health, and inform and support people who are at different stages of their recovery journey.

Our  Autumn/Winter prospectus has now ended. We are in the process of developing our spring 2020 prospectus. For further information on this prospectus, or to see what we do, please visit:
