Event description

Description

Be part of a special project to design a mental health recovery college for Canberra!

The Mental Health Community Coalition ACT (MHCC ACT) is undertaking a project to develop Canberra's very own recovery college and we are pleased to be hosting a series of stakeholder workshops to inform it's design and development.

What is a recovery college?.. Recovery colleges are well established in the UK, US and other capital cities around Australia as places of learning, inspiration and hope for people living with mental illness, thier carers, family and friends.

Colleges operate in a similar way to adult learning centres, offering courses focused on mental health and individual recovery. The college will provide a supportive, inclusive and innovative learning environment to enhance community understanding about mental health issues.

Through this workshop, we are seeking input into possible courses the college might offer, student needs, expectations and support requirements, and how to enable ongoing effective collaboration towards the success of the project.

We invite participation from:

  • People with lived experience of mental illness,
  • Carers of people with mental illness,
  • Mental health professionals including service providers, clinicians, support workers and others from both community and Government sectors, and
  • Adult educators.

There will be 3 full-day workshops held on the 30th (Tuesday - SOLD OUT) and 31st (Wednesday) of May, and June 3 (Saturday). There will be plenty of opportunities to network, take time out and exercise your creative flair! Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
