Leeds Recovery College


Our online courses are delivered using an online digital classroom and most of them also have a ‘live’ session group call.

How are courses delivered?

Our co-designed by people with personal experience of mental health challenges and recovery who work alongside health professionals and education providers who together, co-facilitate our training courses.
Our online courses are delivered using an online digital classroom and most of them also have a ‘live’ session group call. The digital classroom is a closed online space which gives you access to a selection of course resources, including introductory videos that have been pre-recorded by our facilitators. Just as if you were to attend one of our physical, face-to-face courses our ‘live’ session group calls have a start date and time, where you will join an online video workshop hosted by our course facilitators and attended by other students booked onto the course.

Why is the course in the prospectus but not on the course timetable?

We are not able to deliver every course and workshop each term due to the way that our courses are put together. We work with people to share their experience of both living with a mental health condition and health professionals, education providers and trainers. This is often done in addition to their normal role’s, which means our course timetable reflects facilitator availability and local demand. As we develop we hope the range and frequency of our courses will grow and would appreciate your comments and feedback.

Our summer term time-table has less courses running than usual. This is to allow us time to work with our co-facilitators over summer to plan for the return of physical, face-to-face courses next term.

I don’t have a diagnosis or attend any services to support my mental health?

It doesn’t matter. The Recovery College is not a mental health service and our courses are open to all adults who would like to learn more about mental wellbeing. This includes people who work with those who experience mental health challenges.
We believe that good mental health is important to everyone and that we can all play a part in improving our own mental health and contributing to that of others. We offer information based workshops and training that focuses on living mentally and physically well.
