NSFT Recovery College 7 Student comments ery ur s “Hello, I’m Paul Rao.

I work at the recovery college as a peer tutor. My journey to get here has been long and difficult, following a serious mental illness that struck me several years ago. I remember how it felt when I attended my first recovery college course as a student: very anxious about new people and new places and whether I would be able to concentrate, let alone learn. I quickly realised I was amongst peers who all had personal challenges; we all wanted to start making sense of our lives; and we all hoped for better wellbeing. That’s what the recovery college does: it supports people to start taking control of their lives.

I’m really pleased that being a peer tutor allows me to give something back. I love working in a safe, welcoming and supportive environment which inspires people to get something precious for themselves: HOPE.” Paul “Hello my name is Tracey Jackson. I was admitted to the Norvic clinic in 2014 after a serious incident that was brought upon as I have mental health problems. When I went to my first course I was nervous but people made me feel welcome and I settled down. I enjoyed the course and it helped me to understand more about recovery. Well this made me think, and I signed up for more courses.

I have put what I have learned into my own coping skills and I now feel more able to change my life for the better. If I hadn’t been to the recovery college I wouldn’t be where I am today as it has given me the skills and confidence to move on with my life. I am now a volunteer and peer tutor for the recovery college.” Tracey 4801 new prospectus_working _v7 191217_EOB.indd 7 20/12/2017 12:11
