Nicola’s story

Student

Volunteer

I have higher self-esteem through attending the courses and volunteering now has helped me in particular.

I suffer from bipolar disorder and have had a lot of depression over the last two years; isolating myself and hardly leaving the house. My social worker told me about the courses at the Recovery College and I have attended a lot of the mental health courses.

The one I learnt most from was the emotional eating course because I also suffer from an eating disorder. It was very informative and I learnt a lot about myself. I also enjoyed the course about personality disorders and I am proud that I have been able to complete the courses.
