Free online courses to help with mental health from Oxford Recovery College

Oxfordshire Recovery College is going online and offering six weeks of free workshops to help people in their mental health recovery or to support carers, family and friends.

Coping with stress and anxiety, healthy sleep and cooking on a budget among subjects in summer term

The summer term gets under way on April 20 with registrations for eight courses on offer. They are:
  • Introduction to ORC Online
  • Being Creative
  • Focusing on Small Steps
  • Introduction to Mindful Movement and Breathing
  • Coping with Stress and Anxiety (2-part course)
  • Healthy Sleep (2-part course)
  • Cooking on a Budget (2-part course)
  • Five Ways to Wellbeing (5-part course)

The Recovery College, which is a service provided by the award-winning Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership – of which Oxford Health is a member – offers a different approach to mental health support.

Rather than taking a clinical or therapeutic approach it follows an educational approach to recovery – the more we can learn about ourselves, a particular diagnosis, or about tried-and-tested strategies, the more we can look after ourselves and each other.

Courses are designed to help develop knowledge and understanding, and to gain some practical tools for recovery, mental health, living well and education.
