Recovery Education

The Recovery Education Centre (REC) is a partnership project delivered by the Wellbeing and Recovery Partnership (WaRP).

The REC provides educational opportunities that enable people to reframe their experiences by bringing together the perspective of Lived Experience and Clinical/Technical expertise.

Recovery Education is accessed through online resources such as podcasts, videos and workbooks or through classroom learning, either webinars or face to face delivery.

All courses are co-designed and co-delivered by a professional and peer who has lived experience creating an environment that is based on shared humanity and the belief that Trauma and emotional distress is common to us all.
