REACH Recovery College

The REACH Recovery College runs a wide range of courses, workshops and activities to help you better understand your mental health and learn strategies to manage your mental health. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, low mood or a similar mental health condition, the REACH team can support you on your road to recovery.

Going to REACH gives me a reason to get out of the house and then I have more energy to deal with things at home when I get back.

REACH is a safe and supportive learning environment where you can meet others going through similar issues and share your experiences with people who understand what it's like to live with a mental health condition. Our courses and workshops are all completely free.

Online Courses and Workshops

You can now access many REACH Recovery College workshops, courses and activities online. Our courses and groups are being held via the Zoom meeting app, which you can download here. Zoom is very easy to use and we will provide additional support if needed.

Once you've confirmed with us over the phone or in an email that you'd like to join a course, we'll send you Login details and how to access the Zoom meeting for your course. We can help you use digital technology and Zoom if needed. As this is a new format, class and group sizes are being kept small; please be aware that, if you do not get a space on the first course or workshop you wish to join, we will announce more courses and more dates soon.

You can also access Trust Links Live, our online base for accessing Trust Links on Facebook. There is a REACH Recovery College group on Facebook, where you can connect with other College members and contact REACH support tutors. Joining our Facebook group and following Trust Links Live is a great way to stay connected, share tips and access peer-support on keeping positive and healthy!

Workshops are one-off sessions that give you a taster of a longer course or raise awareness around a specific condition. Courses can run from three to eight weeks and combine creative activity with mental health education to help you manage your wellbeing. Our courses can teach you to:

Manage low mood, panic attacks, stress and anxiety Learn how thinking patterns and activity levels can affect mood Prepare for work and volunteering Live a healthier and more active lifestyle through cooking and exercise

And much more.
