Storytelling is one of the foundations of our culture. We can create connections by sharing stories – especially those that offer inspiration and hope. Recovery in mental health is not always well understood; sharing your story makes personal recovery come alive. It also supports values and strengthens lessons learned from life experiences. It helps to build community and create connections.

You can find lots of inspirational stories; use the search bar at the top to find stories relevant to you. To return to this page after a search, please press the back button in your browser.

Hear from our experts about the importance of education in mental health recovery

On Wednesday 31st August, the College will be delivering a presentation on recovery and education at Viewpoint's monthly Get Together event. Presented by a member of the College Staff and an Expert by Experience, it's a great opportunity to showcase the importance of learning in wellbeing and recovery in general.

The Get Together meetings are a monthly event hosted by Viewpoint, the mental health and service user voice charity. Each month, a different guest organisation delivers a presentation on a topic that is important to the health and wellbeing of people in Hertfordshire. The talk is followed by a Q&A with the audience, allowing people to engage directly with the guests. The Get Together events are open to all and free to attend, and are a great way to discover new things and share information.

If you would like to come along and support the College, or would like the opportunity to talk to a member of the College Staff and an Expert by Experience outside of a course setting, then please visit the link below for more information. While there, you can also see if any of the other Get Together events are of interest to you!
