Recovery College Update 5 – 24th of April

Hello again to all our students

We’ve survived another week of the new normal, and hopefully you find that you’re adjusting well.  Each week we are working hard to look at new ways to connect with you.  We are working with tutors to see what courses can be moved online and looking at other resources for you.

Every day try to find something hopeful or positive – it can be simple things i.e. the amazingly clear skies that we are having and the view of the stars at night.  We are lucky that the weather is being kind and we are not looking out to a grey world – instead one full of colour.

We had Suzy Baines from You Matter Always with us on Tuesday Live Zoom and she reinforced that important statement, you do matter, your voice matters, your opinion matters, your thoughts matter, your life matters. See Suzy’s first video on Facebook and youtube.

Some students are telling us that what they have learned in Recovery College has helped them better manage during Covid-19 so we would like some feedback about that, please!

What, if anything, that you gained from Recovery College involvement is

helping you though the current Covid-19 situation?

How can Recovery College continue to support your recovery journey during this period?

What are your ongoing learning needs?
