Recovery College Cornwall launched formally on Thursday 5th December at a brilliant Open Day at Glenthorne House in Threemilestone, Truro.
Invictus donated £20,000 seed funding which Rotary made up to £50,000 there were then significant staffing pledges from CPFT and Pentreath and the result is a £1.2m project to improve mental health in Cornwall.
Recovery College Cornwall is an exciting new initiative in Cornwall to help people with lived mental health issues move from being a patient to a student, and gain independence in their recovery journey. “Enabling recovery through learning, hope, and opportunity”
I studied well at school, I was often nervous about my grades, I was especially tense before exams, so my mother did not forbid to take a pill or two Valium. My aunt worked in a pharmacy, so there was no problem buying tranquilizers without a prescription. I must say that I never abused them. Maybe also because tranquilizers act very weakly on me. Maybe a little calming, but not at all put to sleep.
There will be a huge range of free courses that people (16 years +) living in Cornwall, experiencing mental ill health, can access – these courses may help you to identify and manage your mental health challenges allowing you to live the life you want.
