"Where people with real life experiences share what works"

Established in 2013, The Mind Recovery College® helps participants to build a more positive, connected and purposeful life through short courses designed to build knowledge, skills and awareness. 

The first of its kind in Australia, the Mind Recovery College bridges the gap between mental health services and education, assisting people to develop knowledge and skills to use in their mental health recovery journey.

Participants identify their own learning needs and choose from a suite of courses, which are delivered by facilitators who use their mental health lived experience and recovery to inform their teaching.

Delivered both face-to-face and online, the Mind Recovery College offers structured courses and social recreational activities across a range of areas and interests. Courses vary in length, and are constantly reviewed and adapted to respond to the needs and interests of participants.

Mind Recovery College courses are currently offered in:

  • Queensland
  • South Australia
  • Victoria
  • Western Australia.

Who for:

This service is for people who:

  • are aged 18 - 65 (some youth courses available)

Outcome statement:

They also enable participants to connect with others in a safe and supportive environment, and feel empowered.
