Making Recovery a Reality

Today I ‘shadowed’ for the first time as a peer tutor volunteer for a recovery college course delivered by the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust.

I have always had anxiety speaking in front of groups and articulating what I am trying to say, but surprisingly I was comfortable talking to a room of people for the first time. Despite feeling nervous, being around a group of people with shared experience of having a mental health problem was not at all intimidating.

‘What is Recovery?’ Was exploring what recovery means, from a staff and service user perspective, and how we can move forward from illness. I learnt just as much as a trainee tutor, as when I had attended the course as a trainer.
