The Recovery Education Unit is based at Fulwood House in Sheffield and is part of Sheffield Health and Social Care Trust. Our academic team have a wide range of expertise, including lived experience of mental health problems, which we use to develop and provide education which is designed to challenge traditional notions and promote contemporary thinking about mental health practice.

We hope to equip people interested in mental health with a framework to enable them to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to help people recover and to influence recovery implementation within their area of interest.

All our courses are funded by Health Education Yorkshire & Humber (Specialist Skills Development) Please contact us for further information on how to apply.
