Dorset Recovery Education Centre



The Recovery Education Centre (REC) is jointly delivered by Dorset HealthCare and Dorset Mental Health Forum, a peer-led charity.

The centre co-develops and co-delivers educational based courses focusing on recovery, wellbeing and shared learning, bringing together the expertise of professionals and people with lived experience.

Our courses are available to people with personal experience of mental health difficulties as well as carers, friends, family, and supporters including staff.

The focus is on shared learning, self determination and choice. The REC provides opportunity to explore and understand experiences and to recognise and develop skills and tools which may help in your recovery journey.
