The Canadian Mental Health Association Recovery College takes an educational-based approach focuses on helping people recognize and develop their own resourcefulness and awareness in order to support themselves or their loved one’s recovery journey. All of the courses are developed and delivered in partnership with peer supporters who are experts by experience: they have their own story of a mental health or substance concern, or are supporting a loved one.
Everyone is welcome to attend these FREE courses and drop-in classes. No previous experience is required and with 6 courses to choose from, there is a course for everyone. These classes are being offered through online virtual delivery as well as in person.
The courses are interactive and create positive learning experiences, emphasizing connection, hope and belonging. An emphasis is placed on individual’s talents and strengths. The courses are meant to inspire optimism, encourage students to consider future opportunities, and more people towards personal empowerment.
Recovery is a journey, not a destination.
These online courses will be of interest to organizations supporting older adults in wellness and mental health. Organizations may wish to advise their participants of the availability of these free learning and connection opportunities.
