Valuing the combined lived experience of mental health and professional knowledge we co-produce courses to improve the wellbeing of people in the community of Belfast. Recovery College students include service users, families, friends, carers, staff and those with an interest in wellbeing and mental health. A peer educator with lived experience of mental health and a staff educator with knowledge of the subject area facilitate the workshops. The Belfast Recovery College welcomes everyone to attend our free wellbeing and mental health education and learning programmes. There are a range of courses open to the community of Belfast. All you have to do is enrol!

Most of us experience anxiety at some point in our lives. For many this is upsetting

but manageable and related to real life situations or experiences and usually passes

with time or as the situation resolves. For some people anxiety is constant, extreme

and debilitating and it impacts significantly on quality of life. This course will explore

what anxiety is, the many forms it can take, and how it develops and is maintained.

We also hope to explore a range of treatment options and self-help skills that may

help people to lessen and manage anxiety. A practitioner with expertise in the subject

area and a peer educator with lived experience of anxiety will bring their combined

knowledge to students and will provide practical help in a supportive atmosphere.
