The Severn and Wye Recovery College has launched two new digital manuals.
The manuals were funded by the Health Foundation as a resource to be used both by the college and its students, and by other organisations and groups wishing to set up their own Recovery Colleges.
The first manual – Journeys to Recovering – is to be used by students to guide them through the college’s primary course. It was written by course leader Keith Coupland.
The second manual is a ‘How to’ guide, titled ‘Implementing a Recovery College: One NHS Trust’s Journey’, with chapters authored by a range of people, including course tutors, peer support workers and 2gether colleagues. The manual was edited by Jo Denney and Anna Burhouse and the foreword was written by Julie Repper, Director of ImROC.
They are available on the Recovery College website (through a password protected area). Please contact the college to obtain the password.
A celebratory event took place at Charlton Lane Hospital, in Cheltenham, to officially launch the manuals.
