Recovery college update


Following two successful pilot schemes in 2013, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust is launching the first term of the SLaM Recovery College on 28th April 2014.  The SLaM Recovery College offers mental health recovery education which is co-produced (developed and delivered) by a service user or carer and a health professional.

All of the courses and workshops are free to attend for people with a connection to SLaM as a carer/supporter, service user or staff member .  People enroling in the college attend as a student,  sharing their knowledge and experiences, while learning with people from across the trust in a supportive environment.  The SLaM Recovery College staff team consists of people who have used or currently use mental health services, and health professionals, some of which also have lived experience of mental health difficulties.

The team will be distributing course prospectuses shortly.  If you would like copies of the prospectus, please call 020 3228 2175 or email  with a short message, your organisation name and address and we will arrange for copies to be delivered.

The SLaM Recovery College also has a website where all information about the courses, timetable  and how to enrol is online:

Please do distribute this information to people you work with who may be interested in this exciting education opportunity.  We are available from 09:00am to 5:00pm on 020 3228 2175 to take any enquiries about the college and the courses.
