I particularly enjoy interacting with college staff and students and have realised that I am not the only person who experiences difficulties at times… It has also helped to build my knowledge, which benefits my own journey of recovery. I am grateful for the help and support the college team has provided to me.

I joined the college to get my confidence back and to make new friends. For the first time I am a person not an illness! The Health and Wellbeing College has been a God send!! It's a safe place where I can be myself, it doesn't matter that I am disabled. They accept me for who I am.
