HUMBER RECOVERY

& WELLBEING COLLEGE

New mental health and wellbeing online learning platform to tackle lockdown struggles

Due to Coronavirus and social distancing rules in the UK, many face-to-face wellbeing groups have been stepped down temporarily. The Humber Recovery and Wellbeing College are pleased to introduce a new and improved online offering to bridge the gap as we work towards a ‘new normal’.

Recovery and Wellbeing Colleges take an educational approach to mental health, as opposed to the more traditional medical management. The aim of their services is to facilitate a range of free, informal and welcoming courses that support people in maintaining good mental and psychical health.

The new website is free to use and anyone can sign up for access to a series of courses and virtual sessions available 24/7, with the aim to support an individual’s mental health and wellbeing. These sessions include topics such as Stress Awareness, Resilience, Sleep Hygiene, Exploring Identity and Medication Management.

The website also includes the launch of a “Let’s Chat” series which has been co-produced with people who have lived experience with mental health. The aim of this series is to break down stigma and open up conversations, to facilitate additional support for those who may need it.

Students can track their wellbeing on the platform and useful signposting links are available, which point individuals to both local and national services should they require further support.
