All we’d ask is that, if you do put your name down for a course, you make every effort to attend. Places for all our courses are in high demand so if you can’t attend for any reason please contact the Recovery College office as soon as possible so your place can be offered to someone on the waiting list.
Please note that you also need to be aged 16 or over to come to any of our courses.

This is a short film about the work of our college. We hope that after watching it you will have some inkling of the passion and commitment of our staff and trainers. But, more importantly, we hope that it will give you an idea of the positive impact the college is having on the lives of our students. It was shot and directed by Steven Tart and edited by Belal Ladkani. Many thanks to everyone who took part in the making of the film.
For over 2 years, a service user co-led workshop project called the Tree of Life was run on SLAM’s adult acute in-patient wards. Over that period the workshops were attended by over 650 service users, and nearly 300 members of staff helped to create the ‘Forest of Life’ in SLAM. In 2015 the project won a national mental health award for ‘equality and diversity in service provision ‘and a highly commended for ‘patient experience’.
This film celebrates the co-production values, and commitment to providing compassionate care, that are at the heart of the Tree of Life project.
The Tree of Life Team also run workshops as part of the college’s curriculum, and Dr Julie Fraser, the Lead for the Tree of Life workshops, can be heard in the Radio 4 All in the Mind segment that you can listen to below.
