Welcome to the New Leaf Recovery and Wellbeing College
We offer opportunities to learn about wellbeing and recovery by providing a unique curriculum designed to increase knowledge, understanding and skills to equip you with the tools to live a meaningful, productive and fulfilling life.
We believe you are the expert in your own recovery. Our courses can help you overcome a range of mental health challenges as well as find ways to incorporate healthy wellbeing techniques into your everyday life.
Our courses are co-produced and co-delivered with experts by experience and experts by profession, meaning our courses are designed to give you the most relevant information that have been proven to help you with your recovery.
We are open
After a short break for the Christmas period, the College is now open and rearing to go, with all of our courses being booked up fast too. Take a peak at what's coming up this term.
2020 been a challenging but successful year for the College.
When the Covid-19 pandemic arrived, it presented many challenges for the College and our students, but it also presented us with opportunities. As the end of the year comes to close, we are pleased to share with you some of the achievements and highlights of 2020 for New Leaf Recovery and Wellbeing College and our students.
Christmas can be a difficult time for many already and we anticipate the added pressure of the new Tier 4 lockdown over the Christmas period may contribute to the feelings of isolation. We encourage all of our students to remain hopeful, look forward to the things we can do in the future and make the most of our time now. Read our latest blog for a list of 25 things you can still do at home this Christmas to utilise available resources, embrace the five ways to wellbeing and continue your recovery whilst enjoying some seasonal creativity.
The College is now officially closed for the Christmas period; however please visit our crisis support page for details of other services that are available. You can also download our crisis support leaflet, which gives details of services like chatbots that give you instant connection via message.
We hope you all enjoy the festive period. You can also still book onto our courses for the beginning of next term, and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year.
