The Recovery and Wellbeing Academy aims to support Personal Recovery and Wellbeing.

So what is personal Recovery?

Personal Recovery is about building a meaningful and satisfying life despite difficulties caused by ill health.

There are 3 very important elements of Personal recovery that the Academy supports;

  • Having Control on your life and Illness;
  • Having the Opportunity to build a life beyond illness
  • Having Hope and belief that we can all pursue hopes and dreams.

What is a Recovery & Wellbeing Academy?

Our Academy is not a School, College or Academy in the traditional sense of the word, you don’t need to be academically minded to attend and there are no tests, exams or assessments.  The Academy offers a learning approach to personal recovery and wellbeing that compliments existing services provided by Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust and Coventry & Warwickshire Mind.  We offer a wide range of courses and workshops designed to empower you in recognising your skills, abilities and resources and learning to become an expert in your own recovery and wellbeing.

Who are the Courses & Workshops run by and who are they for?

Our courses and workshops are designed with the expectation that many people attending may feel nervous, worried or may have difficulty concentrating.   Our Courses and Workshops are designed to be informal, friendly and enjoyable and are delivered in safe, nurturing environments.  If you have further learning needs please let us know at enrolment so we can accommodate your specialist requirements.

Many of our courses are led by a Peer Trainer who has direct life experience of recovery and a Practitioner Trainer who has specialist professional skills & knowledge in that subject area.  Both trainers will support students throughout.   

The Recovery and wellbeing courses are open to anyone over the age of 18 living in Coventry and Warwickshire who wants to better manage or understand their Mental Health and wellbeing.  Friends, family, staff, and carers are encouraged to attend as we strongly believe in learning together to get the most out of the courses on offer.

 All courses and workshops delivered by the Recovery and Wellbeing Academy are educational and will equip you with skills and knowledge to better manage your mental health and wellbeing.  However, if you feel you require more intensive or specialist support and currently do not receive any; you can contact your G.P or your local IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) service who offer specialist talking therapies.  For an IAPT assessment please call 02476 671090.
