WCF supports new Wellbeing & Recovery College

A new Wellbeing and Recovery College has been launched in Herefordshire and Worcestershire to support people’s mental health and wellbeing. The aims of the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Wellbeing and Recovery College is to give people the tools, skills and understanding that they need to support their own wellbeing and recovery journey, whilst breaking down stigmas relating to mental health. Worcestershire Community Foundation has been the main investor in the development of the college with a contribution of £50,000 to date. Community First in Herefordshire and Worcestershire led a cross-sector group to develop the project as a vehicle providing learning opportunities for everyone across the two counties. Mental health is one of Worcestershire Community Foundation’s key strategic priorities; they already have an established Mental Health Fund and with the college embedded in the community, will maintain a vested interest in its ongoing development.
The College is a partnership between Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, Voluntary and Community Sector organisations (VCS), Public Sector partners and our Experts by Experience across our communities in Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

The college is available to people living in Herefordshire or Worcestershire aged 18+; anyone who is experiencing challenges or keen to learn about mental health/wellbeing or how to keep themselves well and support others is welcome to register for courses and workshops at https://hwwellbeingandrecoverycollege.org.uk/.
At the same time, also the Recovery Colleges social media accounts were launched, so please feel free to follow, share and repost content on these channels:
