Recovery & Beyond


The ‘Recovery & Beyond’ package includes 6 separate courses which are delivered to groups over 4– 8 weeks.


The courses are designed to address some of the common challenges faced by many people on a day to day basis. The aim is to help participants within a group format make changes to their lives in a planned and achievable way.


With each course, sessions build on the previous one with exercises given at the end for the participants/group to reflect upon the following week. In this way, each person is encouraged to put the learned skills into practise whilst being accountable, not only to themselves but also to the rest of the group. Each person remains in control and is responsible for themselves at all times.


The group format is a useful method of enabling people in managing their condition/ problem. Peer support plays a large role in helping participants to achieve and maintain good mental health. Group members may also choose to attend a self-help group after the course has ended, or even whilst it is still taking place.


The courses available are:


  • Understanding Anger
  • Depression Management
  • Anxiety Management
  • Confidence Building
  • Improving your wellbeing
  • Problem Solving
