Where do the courses take place?

Our courses are delivered in a wide range of community venues across the borough. Each term, we aim to deliver courses in each of the postcodes within the borough to ensure that nobody misses out. We also aim to deliver popular courses in different venues each term to make sure that we are accessible to all people in the borough. 

Who are the courses taught by?

What is special about us is that all of our courses are designed and delivered by people who have lived experience of mental health challenges working together with people who work in mental health services. We call this co-production.

“Co-production is an equal relationship between people who use services and the people responsible for services. They work together from design to delivery, sharing strategic decision making about policies as well as the best way to deliver services”. - National Co-production Advisory Group
