What is a “Recovery College”?

Reframe Wānanga is a place to learn and share ideas about our mental health and wellbeing. Based on the Recovery College model from the U.K. Reframe Wānanga provides courses which are fun and innovative, where different topics about mental health and wellbeing are discussed and where we share different approaches to learn about recovery. All the courses at Reframe Wānanga are based on co-production, which means that the courses are designed and run by people with lived experience and professionals. We place equal value on expertise learnt by experience and expertise gained from working professionally. This means that we see each other as equals whatever our background, and view everyone as a learner about recovery. Stepping out of our roles and sharing from experience helps us to look at mental health in a different way.
