The Lancashire Recovery College is running free courses people in Lancashire to help them keep, stay, and live, well as part of an exciting new project that is being run by Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust along with their partners.

The courses cover a range of topics that also include sessions on artistic meditation, stress, how to relax and dealing with gambling. One of the courses, Wild Wellbeing, will be held at the picturesque Brockholes Nature Reserve with the Lancashire Wildlife Trust to help people connect with nature.

The courses are free and available to anyone over the age of 18 with initial venues in Chorley, Preston and South Ribble. Courses will also be run in East Lancashire and then eventually cover the whole of Lancashire.

The Recovery College courses are a safe and friendly space for people to learn and share, if they wish, without feeling judged. They are also interactive and specially designed to make sure attendees do not feel they are back in school. Participants will be challenged to look inwards and to reflect on how they perceive the world to enable them to break down barriers.
