Western Sydney Recovery College is an innovative approach to inclusive education and recovery within the community and mental health sector, utilising a collaborative, community driven model of adult education to assist people in their recovery and increase knowledge, skills and awareness of mental health within the community.
All programs delivered by the college are co-produced. This means that the content is co-designed and co-delivered by people with lived experience of mental health conditions as a consumer or carer and mental health professionals. Co-production promotes shared understanding and breaks downs barriers and reduces stigma and increases a community of understanding and support.
The programs reflect the diversity of the communities in which they are delivered and the content is generated and directed by students to ensure that their recovery journey is self-directed and they are empowered to build capacity and skills.
Programs, course and workshops are delivered in locations across western Sydney including Parramatta, Blacktown, Auburn and Mt Druitt.
Western Sydney Recovery College is funded as an initiative of WentWest PHN and is delivered by One Door Mental Health. Our RTO is the Mental Health Co-ordinating Council (MHCC) who will deliver accredited training programs.
The WSRC office is staffed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 9am-5pm.
