Recovery in Mind is a social enterprise based at Broadway House in Newbury that provides free of charge courses to any adults living in West Berkshire with mental health difficulties. Angela Ryan, founder and lead peer trainer says “We enable people to manage their own mental health through attending a wide variety of free courses.
At Recovery in Mind we aim to help people 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.
We 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, our peer trainers are people who started out on their journey with Recovery in Mind as students. Come and experience our courses for yourself by starting out by attending an ‘Introduction to Recovery’ bite-size session. We look forward to meeting you soon.
‘A friendly and welcoming place to start your recovery journey’
‘I found the courses so helpful - they are not aimed at individual counselling but are about learning/studying together in a safe, caring environment. They are supportive, positive and forward-looking; encouraging you to accept yourself and develop your own personal 'wellness toolbox'.’
