“Our Caz”, had been picked by the police and was in a psychiatric hospital somewhere in north London and she needed to be brought back “up to a ward up north...”. “C’mon lad, we’re off to London” dad said.
I had low confidence and believed I couldn't achieve anything...I am really proud of what I can now achieve.
I have higher self-esteem through attending the courses and volunteering now has helped me in particular.
The Recovery College were very helpful, meeting me before the course, making sure everything for the course was suitable for me.
I have the Recovery College to thank for giving me the necessary skills to engage and the drive to work in the NHS.
The Recovery College to me means making classes fun, friendly, sociable and creative environments, helping students to achieve a positive effect on their mental wellbeing.
As well as volunteering for the Recovery College, I also attended various courses.
Teaching for the Recovery College gave me the belief I could still do my job at a time when I was doubting myself.
