Welcome to New Leaf Recovery and Wellbeing College

At the college, we offer hope for the future despite life’s challenges, opportunity, learning from other students experiences and control, equipping them with the skills to make changes tosupport their wellbeing. The college is not somewhere to obtain qualifications but to learn self-management and personal development.

Recovery colleges offer educational courses about mental wellbeing supporting personal recovery. The ethos is to increase students’ knowledge and skills and help them take control by learning self-management strategies to help their mental health and wellbeing. The concept emerged through recognition of people being experts in their own care and their views should be central to their recovery journey.

New Leaf Recovery and Wellbeing College is passionate about making sure students are placed at the centre of all we do. Within the college we do all we can to build on peoples’ strengths andsupport people to move from ‘patient’ to ‘student’ and sometimes ‘teacher’. We work together collaboratively at every level, assisting the individual in their personal recovery journey to share and empower others on their personal recovery.

The college offers hope, opportunities and the tools for students to self-manage and take control. We offer students support, resources and the time to reflect, so they can discover how to manage their own wellbeing.

The college is free to all Hertfordshire residents aged 18 and over.
