ACT Recovery College
MHCC is the lead agency in the development of an ACT Recovery College. The College was officially opened on April 10th, 2019.
A Recovery College is a place of learning, connection, opportunity and hope for people living with mental illness, their carers, families and friends. Colleges operate in a similar way to adult learning centres but with a focus on mental health. Recovery Colleges complement other mental health services and help increase participants’ ability to stay well.
The college will be established under a unique model that combines the strengths and expertise of the community mental health sector and the public sector. A consortium of partners is being set up to manage the trial. These partners include:
ACT Mental Health Consumer Network
Mental Health, Justice Health, and Alcohol & Drug Services, ACT Health.
