The Tower Hamlets Recovery College continues to grow from strength to strength. The invaluable contribution from our peer and professional tutors, volunteers, students and staff has allowed us to continue to deliver educational courses about mental and physical health recovery and wellbeing.
Spring Term 2019 welcomed new developments
and projects in the college. We launched
our new webpage on the East London NHS
Foundation Trust website and our bespoke
Student Portal. The portal allows students
to create an account to manage their course
enquiries. As with all new innovations, we
continue to work and develop this process to
ensure that it is as user friendly, accessible
and supportive to the student experience. Your
feedback and suggestions for improvements
are always welcome!
We also embedded the Individual Learning
Plan (ILP) process as an additional offer from
the College. To find out more about the ILPs or
if you would like to complete one with our ILP
Peer Mentors see page 7.
We also completed the last project that Rob
Pickard initiated before he left;
The College Mural. Rob started this project in
Summer 2017 alongside Expression with Art.
It’s completion not only reflects the strong
sense of togetherness and cohesion within the
College and local Tower Hamlets community,
but also embeds Rob’s commitment to
recovery and empowerment for all. See page

Spring Term 2019 was again a great success!
New courses included ‘Understanding
Personality Disorders’, ‘Carers Caring for
Themselves’ and ‘Getting Into Volunteer Work’.
Some of these courses will be running again
this term so keep an eye out for them!
Summer Term 2019 will see the return of our
more popular courses as well as some new
courses including ‘Understanding Post Traumatic Stress Disorder’, ‘Managing
Smoking’, ‘Positive Steps: Exercise for Mental
and Physical Health Difficulties’, ‘Sexuality,
Gender and Mental Health’, ‘Art and Recovery’,
‘Understanding Post-Natal Depression’ and
‘Horticulture and Recovery’. These courses
were developed in response to student
feedback about what courses they would like
us to run and what they would like to learn! Your
feedback ensures that our courses continue to
meet your learning needs and all feedback is
encouraged and welcomed!
We hope that all students who enquire about
courses get a place! However, our courses
get booked up quickly so make sure to enrol
as soon as possible. If you have enrolled on a
course and are unable to attend, please let us
know so that we can offer that place to another
If you have any ideas for new courses, or

We look forward to seeing you all soon.
