Welcome to the Devon Recovery Learning Community

A Recovery College provided by Devon Partnership NHS Trust for the wellbeing of people in Devon.

Our students are people with lived experience of mental health difficulties, their family and friends, and the professionals who support them.

About our courses

DRLC Prospectus

The Devon Recovery Learning Community offers opportunities to learn about mental health and recovery by providing a unique curriculum designed to increase your knowledge, understanding and skills to equip you with the tools to live a meaningful, productive and fulfilling life.

Our aim is to promote hope, opportunity and choice. We want to help you take control and become an expert in your own wellbeing and recovery in order that you can get on with your life despite any mental health challenges you might face.

We work at a beautiful location where we host a small number of courses. Many others are held at the venues of our partners and supporters. People with lived experience of mental health difficulties have worked alongside mental health and education professionals to produce the courses.

For most of the courses, the tutors will bring both personal and professional experience to the session. Click here to learn more

You can see all the courses we offer and book on them via the Courses section of the website.
