Recovery College

This is a new initiative ….

Recovery College

The Recovery College Model is a Merthyr and the

Valleys Mind initiative aimed at providing Psychoeducational

courses to people experiencing mental

health conditions, largely aimed at equipping them

with self-management techniques. We have now

trained a member of staff to deliver a range of

accredited training courses in partnership with

Merthyr and the Valleys Mind, which will help

to build confidence, give insight, and support

individuals with exercises and techniques to

better cope with and manage their condition.

Courses are accredited via Agored Cymru. We

have also trained two staff to deliver Applied

Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)- All

staff members have now undertaken this training

and we have also delivered it to volunteers and

externally with other organisations. We are now

able to offer this professional accredited training

externally to any employer or organisation who

would like their staff to acquire this skill set
