Northumberland Recovery College is offering a range of free courses and workshops to support people with their mental health and wellbeing.
What is a recovery college?
A recovery college is not a building or a place, it’s an opportunity to become your own expert in what works to manage your wellbeing. The college provides learning experiences, mutual support, and activities at a pace that is right for you.
Details of upcoming sessions are below and will take place via Zoom. To book a place please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or text 07515 326 750.
