Is this course for me?

This module is suitable for anyone working within mental health services, especially post qualifying nurses, OT’s and social workers, as the thinking/philosophy underpinning ‘recovery’ is a challenge to the status quo.

What will this course cover?

For too long, those who fall prey to mental health problems have been cast to the fringes of society and the art of recovery is about taking steps to regain one’s place in the world as an active citizen with rights and a contribution to make to society. This module will aim to focus on people’s strengths and what they have to offer with the first step in the recovery process being to believe that it is possible to recover and the second step is about being realistic as there are no quick fixes.
