Recovery Devon

Supporting mental health Recovery and well-being

JULY 3RD 2020

We’re hosting a conference and festival sharing knowledge and art from the most innovative and imaginative approaches to recovery.

About Recovery Devon

We believe that with the right support and help people with mental health issues can and do recover and live meaningful and purposeful lives of their own choosing. Since 2003 we have actively promoted this idea and sought to put recovery and wellbeing at the heart of mental health provision.

For individuals

We encourage people who have experienced mental health challenges to join us through membership, events, online forums and more… as much or as little as they wish.

For organisations

We work with organisations across Devon at all levels, supporting them to work co-productively with people who have lived experience of mental health recovery.

What We Do

Support

While we don’t directly offer support we have many resources and links to useful groups. Our creative cafe is filled with art exploring mental well-being. The support section has information for people in recovery, their families and friends.

Creativity

There are poems, films, book reviews and other creations, all with their focus on Recovery. If you are creative yourself and would like to offer some work for our site, writing, art or photography, simply use our contact us form.

Resources

Our resource library is aimed at offering guides, information and research materials for Recovery and other areas of mental health. We also have research papers and accounts from individuals which offer useful or unexpected perspectives.
