A packed room listened to Professor Mike Cooke CBE opening the Recovery Demonstration Day at Highbury Hospital in Bulwell.

Recovery from mental ill health is about taking back control and living a life with hope, choice and opportunity.

Other professionals and partners travelled today from as far as Devon and Essex to hear how Notts Healthcare have achieved this.

Working in a recovery focused way is fully supported by the board at Notts Healthcare.

Dr Julie Repper, Trust Recovery Lead and Nottingham Recovery College Director shared the journey of how to change the culture of the Trust by co-production and sharing success stories to inspire others.

Some of the things people say about recovery

"Believing you will feel happy one day"

"Doing things with friends"

"Being able to live well"

"Finding a way of living a fulfilling life"

"Taking responsibility for keeping yourself well
