The Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership launches the Oxford Recovery College


10/01/2016

The Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership has recently formed with the aim of providing better joined up care across services to help patients get the appropriate help and support they need when they need it.

The partnership will enable workers across Oxford Health NHS FT, Oxfordshire Mind, Response, Restore, Connection Floating Support, and Elmore Community Services to work collaboratively in teams to support mental health patients.

The Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership has launched the Oxford Recovery College, which provides courses and workshops to help people with mental health problems. The college will be run by people with lived experience of mental health problems alongside professionals to deliver a supportive, educational learning environment to aid recovery.

The recovery college’s aim is “to provide an innovative shared learning environment for people who use mental health services, their families, carers and volunteers and staff of the Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership”.

The courses and workshops will take place across Oxfordshire at educational and community venues. The college administration is based at mental health charity, Restore, who are the lead partner for the recovery college.
