Our students are people with lived experience of mental health difficulties, their family and friends, and the professionals who support them.

Our tutors bring a broad range of expertise to the courses they deliver: an in-depth understanding of recovery values and principles, specialist knowledge, teaching or training experience, experience of working in the field of mental health, together with relevant lived experience of mental health issues. These are all vital ingredients in the production and delivery of all our courses. Students can sometime progress to become Tutors.

Our approach is educational, informed by the values and principles of recovery that aim to instil hope, opportunity and control.

Our courses are open access for Somerset residents over the age of 18 and are free of charge. We do not take referrals from health professionals, and our students do not have to be using mental health services to access any of our courses, as long as they have an interest in mental health, and recovery is genuine.

Our Recovery curriculum promotes learning to support personal journeys of recovery in several different areas.

A note on co-production.  Co-production is a key value and defining principle of Recovery Education. This means that our courses are designed and delivered by at least two people, one of whom has to have lived experience of mental ill health, and by either a mental health professional or expert in the topic for the course.
