Compass Recovery College
Compass Recovery College continues to run free mental health and wellbeing workshops, both online and in person. Whether you are a returning participant or new to Compass Recovery College, there’s something for everyone. The wide range of workshops we offer are an educational route to recovery from mental health challenges and increasing positive wellbeing.
Workshops focus on self-management skills and living well, with the aim of all our participants becoming experts in their own self-care. All our workshops are co-produced; designed and delivered by people with lived experience of mental health challenges together with mental health professionals. Our aim is for everyone to feel listened to in a safe space, with the opportunity to connect with others.
Everyone is welcome and everyone is a participant, whether affected directly or indirectly by mental ill health. You do not need a referral or a diagnosis to attend. So, whether you are struggling yourself, or perhaps you are a carer, family member or professional who would like to know more about mental health and wellbeing, we can help.

Wellbeing for Carers ONLINE with Compass Recovery College
4 sessions starting Wednesday March 15th 2:00-3:30pm
These workshops work with carers to identify and articulate their needs. We explore prevention and wellness techniques that everyone can use to monitor their wellness and cope with challenges. We look at creating a daily maintenance plan and investigate how we cope with difficult situations. We will also create a wellness toolbox which participants can use in their daily lives.
You can register for this workshop on our website at https://www.compassrecoverycollege.uk/
