About us

The college aims to provide students with knowledge and resources to help them manage their mental wellbeing. All of our courses and seminars are free to residents of Hertfordshire over the age of 18. All students have the opportunity to join the student development programme to aid further their recovery.

We provide courses and seminars to support wellbeing and learn from the experiences of students through blogs, articles, newsletters, lived experience testimonials and more. The college also has a student development programme that offers people an opportunity to use their lived experience and develop skills through co-production and co-delivery.

The college is managed by Hertfordshire Partnership NHS University Foundation Trust (HPFT)

HPFT provides health and social care for over 400,000 people with mental health challenges, physical ill-health and people with learning disabilities across Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Norfolk and North Essex. HPFT provides both community and in-patient care and support to people and a range of nationally commissioned specialist services, including Tier 4 services for children and young people, perinatal services and medium and low secure learning disability services.
