Charity and NHS work together to offer mental health wellbeing courses
The chance to attend mental health wellbeing courses in Durham are being offered by the Richmond Fellowship and the Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust.
People in Durham are now being offered to attend mental health wellbeing courses with tutors who have experienced mental health problems, in a bid to reduce the stigmas surrounding mental health, reports the Chronicle Live.
They are expanding the range of courses on offer at the Arch Recovery College where people with mental health issues, their carers and staff can enrol as students to learn more about mental health recovery.
Claire Chapman, operations manager for the Recovery College based at St Margaret’s Health Centre in Durham, said: “The feedback we have had so far from students at the Recovery College has been really positive, people are welcoming the courses available and finding them really useful. Richmond Fellowship has a wealth of experience in delivering services and support to those with mental health issues and a passion for making recovery a reality. Their values and approach therefore made them a perfect partner to work with in delivering courses at the college.”
Locality manager for Richmond Fellowship Andy Rowe said: “We’re very excited to be working with TEWV on delivering training for the Arch Recovery College in Durham. A recovery college is a space for people to learn more about mental health whether they are living with mental health problems themselves, know someone who is or simply want to learn more. We will be offering key courses in stress management, interacting with other people and money management as well as many of the key skills vital for independent living. It’s a great facility for people living in Durham and the surrounding areas and we’re very excited to see our first students come on board.”
