Recovery in Mind

Recovery in Mind is on a mission to improve the lives of adults living in West Berkshire with mental health challenges by delivering free of charge, inspiring and empowering  courses.  

They help people to take back control of their lives, find hope and to make the most of life’s opportunities whilst working out their own goals and aspirations and how to work towards them.  They believe that both people who have lived experience of mental health challenges and those who are professionally qualified in the field of mental health share the important role of course trainers.  In fact, their peer trainers are people who started out on their journey with Recovery in Mind as students.

They believe that people can lead satisfying and meaningful lives despite the mental health challenges they may experience.   By learning to ‘self-manage’ their mental health they can help their ‘students’ (they refer to anyone attending their courses as students) to gain hope, take back control of their lives and make the most of life’s opportunities. 

They do this by providing a wide range of free of charge courses, to any adult living in West Berkshire, which allows them to undergo a personal & unique process of redefining their attitudes, values, expectations, goals, skills & roles.

Whilst being mindful of life’s ongoing challenges (mental health or otherwise) they encourage their ‘students’ to look forward with realistic optimism and hope. All their courses are led and designed by both their ‘peer trainers’ who share their own lived experience of mental health challenges and Occupational Therapists who share their wealth of professional knowledge and expertise.  They are committed to the ‘personal’ recovery of our students through co-production, compassion and a shared belief that recovery is possible.
