"Recovery Education Centre!"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health (inpatient)

(as a staff member),

Hi I'm Jules. When I arrived at the centre I was impressed with the sign outside and it was nice to see lots of different people from the NHS to celebrate the launch the Recovery Education Centre. I'm interested in some courses which I'll be attending to improve my relationships with mental health problems. I would like to use my compassion, caring and listening skills to develop myself and others on thier recovery path.

Hi I'm Yvonne, I work for LHA-ASRA. I support the service users of Amity. I love Amity, the staff and service users are very friendly and passionate about what they do! There is a growing of service users that have got together and formed Amity Members Group to give a voice to people with mental health issues. I support them to secure funding to deliver activites at Amity.

Hi I'm Julie, a staff member in the trust. I think it's been a fabulous day. It's been well attended and inspirational! The Recovery Education Centre is a place for people to come and go on courses to develop skills, to meet their goals and aspirations.
