We are reshaping mental health services in Reading and we want to hear from you to help us build the new model.
We are thinking about including a Recovery College in the new model, to help people gain new skills in order to live more fulfilling lives. The Recovery College will provide a variety of courses co-designed and co-delivered by people with mental health issues and by mental health professionals. We want to know what courses you would like on a training programme and when and where you would want those delivered from.
A Reading Recovery College could include a Students’ Union, where people will be able to find additional social and welfare support. This could also be a place to get help at times of crisis. The Students’ Union would be a shared area for socialising, for peer support, for sharing information and advice, and building new skills too. We want to know what would make the Students’ Union a meaningful place for you to meet others and find help and support at difficult times.
We want to hear from you! Tell us what you think by completing the on-line questionnaire at www.reading.gov.uk/mhconsultation
The consultation will close on Tuesday 23rd August 2016.
If you would like to receive the questionnaire in hard copy or in a different format, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0118 937 2383.
You can also give your views at one of our consultation meetings on Mental Health Community Support.
