Devon Recovery Cafes – You’re invited!

It’s been a while since our community sat in a circle together, and with health and safety advice changing daily, it’s hard to plan for when we will again. In the meantime, people’s need for connection is stronger than ever.

To help us stay connected while we wait, we’re offering something new – a monthly Devon Recovery Cafe online. These are for anyone interested in mental health recovery, for themselves and / or their communities in Devon.

It’s so important to have spaces where you can be yourself and speak honestly about what’s happening for you. There are no waiting lists, booking systems or referral process. Just turn up with a cuppa, and be welcomed as you are. Cafes start with a wellbeing check-in and a round of introductions for those who wish to speak. We then talk about what’s coming up for people. Each cafe is hosted by one of the team, who often brings a recovery resource to share.

They’re co-hosted by Recovery Devon and the Devon Recovery Learning Community, so there’s a wide range of knowledge and resources to draw on.

Devon Recovery Cafes happen on the third Friday of each month from 5pm – 6pm. To join in, simply visit http://bit.ly/devon123 and enter the password “welcome” (all lower case) when prompted. You can turn your webcam and mic on if you wish, or just sit and listen – whichever is comfortable for you.

Not sure whether it’s for you? Try our introductory podcast, “Getting To Know Recovery Devon,” or email social@recoverydevon.co.uk for a chat.

We very much hope to see you at a Recovery Cafe soon!
