We are a group of mental health professionals and people with lived experience of mental health difficulties. We have come together to share our knowledge about mental health recovery, to inspire and support others.
We believe that anyone can experience mental health difficulties at any time in their life and it is ok not to be ok.
Recovery means finding ways to live as well as possible, whatever that means for the person and often involves finding hope, new meaning in life and gaining control of how difficulties are managed.
We feel that peer learning and support (from people with similar experiences) can form a vital component of mental health recovery.
We believe in collaboration between people with lived experience of mental health difficulties and mental health professionals where all perspectives are valued equally.
We aim to co-produce a series of educational workshops on recovery and wellbeing topics that will be open to anyone with an interest in learning about mental health.
Our workshops will include input from people with lived experience and mental health professionals to offer people tools and ideas for promoting recovery and wellbeing.
We aim to make these an open, inclusive, non-judgemental space where people can feel safe and comfortable to share and learn together.
We aim to promote a positive view of recovery to enable people to feel empowered and in control of their own wellbeing.
