About the course

Back to course listing

Who should attend this course?

Anyone who would like to explore how collaboration and co-production with service users can be applied in developing and delivering recovery-oriented mental health services.

Course content

The course is split into 8 learning units all of which have core activities and supplementary activities to place you at the centre of your learning. The first four units look at the key concepts and how services can change to become more recovery-focused. The second four units explore the roles of key stakeholders, for example practitioners, service users, carers in how we can implement change and work differently.

Why choose this course?

This course will introduce you to what is possible - for you as an individual and for the services you are involved with. 

Entry requirements...

Typically, a good first degree or equivalent, as well as having involvement in mental health services delivery.

We also welcome applications from service users, carers, or those involved in mental health services delivery that do not have a first degree. If you have missed the opportunity to become a graduate but can nonetheless demonstrate your potential to work at Master’s Level, we will consider your application. 

I don’t have a degree, how do I demonstrate my potential to work at Master’s level?

If you do not have the required academic qualifications, you will be set a written task to demonstrate your motivation, knowledge and potential to work at Masters Level. This task will demonstrate your ability to critically digest and discuss a relevant article, as well as reflect upon and articulate perceived personal challenges involved in working at Masters level. You will also need to submit a personal statement outlining your current involvement in mental health services or personal experience, as well as your motivation for studying the course.
