Welcome to the North Cumbria Recovery College.

Working together to improve mental health and wellbeing.

NOVEMBER TO FEBRUARY 2023

Thank you to everyone that has provided us with feedback in regards to the changing format of the timetables and the way that we provide information about the sessions.  For the November to December provision (Block 2) we have created separate timetables for each area and kept the planners combined for the Allerdale and Copeland area and the Eden and Carlisle area.  The planner is intended to act as a calendar that you can add/change as other courses become available.  All updates for the timetable will be communicated via email, social media and of course on here.

If you are unable to enrol via our website while it is being updated and re-designed, please book using the links in the PDF versions of the timetables, email us using hello@ncrecoverycollege.org or call us for free on 0808 196 1773.

Everyone registering interest in a course will be given a 15 mins call to talk through other courses that might be useful and to introduce you to the team!

We are delivering courses in blocks of 6 weeks within school term times and having drop in/feedback/keep in touch sessions during school breaks, the attached timetables/planners have the the next 2 blocks on which takes you up to February 2023 – courses are subject to change where there is low or no uptake, or where a partner organisation has been booked in.

Thank you to those that have already been able to provide feedback, please share the timetables/directory with people you know that might benefit from joining us and continue to let us have any feedback that we need to keep moving forward together.

As always we hope that you enjoy the courses and if you spot any errors or omissions that we have missed, please let us know using our email: hello@ncrecoverycollege.org or give us a call on 0808 196 1773.  Please be aware that we are in the process of re-designing our website and hope to have this up and running very soon.

Janine Ward – Managing Director of Together We CIC and Lead Coordinator of the North Cumbria Recovery College

I am one of the Managing Directors at Together We and a Mental Health and Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner as well as a lived experience peer. I have worked delivering evidence-based mental health interventions for 18 years to a range of groups and have experienced severe periods of mental health illness throughout my life at times requiring hospitalisation.  I am highly motivated in helping other people take control over their physical and mental health and strive to help others look at mental illness instead as recovery and fostering positive skills to improve their quality of life. I am keen on promoting self management and enjoy working alongside individuals to achieve this.

 

 

Samantha Joughin – Managing Director of Together We CIC 

Hi I’m Sam, my role is Exercise and Talk Support Practitioner and Managing directors of Together We CIC.

I intend to deliver courses within the college based around using physical activity for mental health recovery and general wellbeing.

I’ve spent numerous years working within fitness and coaching before moving into mental health support, my future with Together We is to train as a low intensity cbt practitioner for children and young people, though I still maintain my passion for helping people to get active and to use physical activity as a recovery tool.

 

 

 

Chloe Bragg – Recovery College Administrator 

Hello, my name is Chloe and I live in Workington. I am so excited to be starting my new journey with Together We, working for the new Recovery College.  A major part of my life and a huge passion of mine is dance. I have been dancing since I was very young and is something that has helped me massively with confidence as well as creating amazing opportunities for myself.

I have an interest also in all areas of sport which I studied at A level and definitely is a career goal of mine for the future.  I am very much looking forward to developing my skills, meeting new people and making memories as well as being a part of an amazing team.

 

 

 

Emily Prier – Recovery College Coordinator

Hi I’m Emily, Recovery College Coordinator (Lived Experience). Although originally from Kent I made Cumbria my home 21 years ago and it is definitely the place I call home now. I have struggled with my mental health since I was a teenager but with bit of grit and determination it hasn’t stopped me fulfilling my dreams although it has been a bit of an obstacle at times. I qualified as a teacher in 2000, which was what I’d always wanted to do and is what brought me to West Cumbria. Since leaving the classroom quite a few years ago now I have never lost the passion in sharing knowledge and learning. I am very excited about being part of The Recovery College and hoping that it will make a huge difference to the mental health and well being of all in North Cumbria. When I’m not at work I can usually be found doing something with my dogs, Harry and puppy Hope. I compete in agility and enjoy mantrailing. I also enjoy being “crafty” and painting and drawing and am always willing to try something new.

 

 

Jean-Ann Gate – Recovery College Coordinator

Hello!  I’m Jean-Ann, Recovery College Coordinator and Talk Support Practitioner.  As an ex-secondary school teacher and learning mentor prior to joining the talk service in April 2020 I have been able to work alongside children and families in supporting them in beginning to understand how to overcome some of the obstacles and barriers that life sometimes puts in the way.  I am really passionate about life-long learning and proud to work with the Recovery College team in contributing to improving the recovery journey for all adults across North and North West Cumbria.
