Recovery College

Our Recovery College is a college like no other…

Recovery College at The Life Rooms is where you can have positive experiences that support your wellbeing and help you to discover new meaning and purpose in life.

We have a variety of workshops and sessions and you decide which you would like to try. You can read more about the courses we offer here. We add new courses and opportunities throughout the year so please keep checking the website for the most up to date information or call in and see us.

With us you can learn more about supporting recovery, living with and managing mental health conditions, or exploring creative opportunities which may reignite a passion or find a new one. Our courses encourage a richer life through learning whilst emphasising hope, control and opportunity.

We now offer over 50 different courses and we are always developing more. We work on a model of co-production and welcome students, carers, community members and Mersey Care staff to explore and develop new learning opportunities with us.

We recognise that recovery is a journey, not an end point and the facilitators on our courses bring their own skills and lived experience of mental health; they understand.

We will support you so that you can gain the confidence you need to do the things you want to do and be the person you want to be.
