"Nottingham Recovery College changing lives"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

After completing several courses at the college I went on a City & Guilds course 'Train the Trainer' at the college which I passed and it gave  me lots of confidence. I' m now mentoring people at the college and guiding people through their student life. Through my lived experience I have been able to co produce and co deliver courses.

I realise I'm not on my own anymore, all the vulnerable people out there and all the labels people get made you realise that actually I  was vulnerable but with support I managed to cope using strategies given to me from health professionals.

Thanks for sharing your recovery story Brett.

I've passed it onto the Recovery College as I'm sure they will be pleased to hear you have shared your college experience on Patient Opinion.
