Help us support our island community to understand more about mental health and recovery, improve wellbeing and address stigma

Become a trainer

Jersey Recovery College employs Peer Trainers to share insights learned from their own mental health difficulties, or experiences as carers, with our students. Their expertise is essential to our courses and demonstrates hope to our students.

We are always on the lookout for professional partners to design and deliver our courses with our peer trainers, we call these partners ‘co-trainers’. Our co-trainers offer expertise in their subject area whether that is mental health, nutrition, mindfulness or returning to work, and often provide evidence-based content for the course content. Our co-trainers are sometimes supported by their place of work to contribute to the Recovery College and sometimes volunteer their time.

We encourage anyone interested in becoming a Jersey Recovery College Trainer to attend two of our Recovery College courses to experience the role in action and to learn about our approach to recovery and education. For more information on when we are next recruiting, please contact hello@recovery.je.

 


Submit an idea for a course

We are always looking for ideas for courses to programme. This could be a course you would like to design yourself, or a course idea you would like us to design for you to attend. If you have a course idea please contact us at hello@recovery.je.


Support us

Jersey Recovery College would not be able to exist without community donations and support. If you would like to donate or fundraise for us, please contact us at hello@recovery.je. Every penny raised stays local and enables us to deliver our free courses to members of our community.
