What is Recovery College?

A presentation that offers an overview of North Ayrshire Wellbeing & Recovery College delivered by Jeanette Allan (Recovery College Coordinator), Linda Hull (Primary Care Mental Health Self Help Worker) and Lynne Shakespeare (Recovery College Student). The presentation was first delivered on behalf of North Ayrshire HSCP at the Scottish HSCP Conference in Nov 2019. See the presentation to the Health and Social Care Partnership.

Unable to meet face to face during Covid-19, staff, students, tutors and partners have filmed themselves or have been recorded chatting on Zoom, to reflect on the last years experiences with NAWARC. Hopefully you will be inspired and uplifted by peoples’ recovery journeys and will recognise that this model for self management is both effective and enables individuals to thrive.

Celebration of learning

Below you will find a range of courses to choose from. This includes: Drumming for Wellbeing, Recovery Wisdom, You Matter Always and Mindfulness.

Drumming for Wellbeing with Dr Jane Bentley

Ever wanted to drum? In this short course, we’ll explore the benefits of drumming for wellbeing – and learn how to create simple rhythms to play at home. You don’t need a drum to take part, as we’ll have suggestions and ideas for things you can find around the home to jam along with. We’ll learn the West African rhythm and song, ‘Fanga’, as well as techniques for playing a variety of drums and percussion instruments. There’s a play along track each week, and a link to an online resource to follow up. Happy drumming! Dr Jane Bentley
