“My Recovery has changed my life in how I look at myself and knowing what helps me.” – My Recovery participant

My Recovery is a multi-session education and support program for people living with mental health issues.  The program is led by peers – trained people who have their own experience of mental health issues and recovery.

My Recovery provides a safe and confidential space to explore recovery and build skills.  Participants will:

  • learn about mental health and recovery
  • explore ways to improve social and emotional wellbeing
  • develop communication and advocacy skills
  • find ways to challenge stigma and discrimination
  • share and learn from others experiences
  • develop ongoing support networks

My Recovery is delivered over 9 x 3.5 hour sessions and there is no charge to attend.  Anyone who is over the age of 18 and has an experience of mental health challenges, trauma or alcohol and other drug related issues is eligible to apply.

“”My Recovery facilitated connectedness with a diversity of others with similar experiences and wisdom to share. I truly believe in the personal recovery and peer-led model because it honours our journey and reimagines us as a community of active, capable and knowledgeable individuals. ” – My Recovery participant
