The Wellbeing and Recovery College provides recovery-focused education courses that are accessible to everyone in our local communities. We work together to create an environment of hope, control and opportunity for us all.

"...let's focus on the humanity we share rather than the diagnosis we do not" - Elyn Saks, TED Talk 2012

We do this by:

  • bringing together professional, carer and people with lived experience equally to guide all aspects of the college and our courses (co-production)
  • challenging stigma 
  • creating a safe environment where we can learn from each other and recognise each other's strengths and vulnerabilities
  • keeping strong links with our communities
  • supporting and recognising that everyone's wellbeing and recovery is individual
  • focusing on what makes us well
  • being open and accessible to all.

Our long term aim is to offer a balance of online and face-to-face courses, in Stafford, Shrewsbury, Telford, or online, and this blended approach began in Spring Term 2022. We are continuously working to increase the in-person courses gradually over time, alongside our online courses, to offer all students a choice of how they would like to attend. All in-person courses will be subject to government guidelines at the time, and we will let you know if there are any changes to courses that you have booked onto.

We will continue to keep in touch with our students and keep everyone up to date with ongoing developments and plans; we have a regular email update and you can also follow us on our Facebook page: Wellbeing and Recovery College MPFT and Twitter: @reccollegempft for our latest news.
