Recovery Co-ordinator service

The Recovery Co-ordinator service aims to help you acquire the right information and guidance to be able to access beneficial opportunities and services in the wider community.

The Recovery Co-ordinator service supports people to manage and take control of their mental health symptoms so they don’t become a barrier to a better quality of life.

We will help you acquire the right information and guidance to be able to access beneficial opportunities and services in the wider community. We use an individually tailored approach to help you identify meaningful goals and make plans to achieve them.

The service will also help you build and develop your social networks.

“…a person-centred approach is not simply asking people what they want or offering choices – that’s just being polite. A person-centred approach means that all support is guided by what the person wants out of life, and that services are structured in order to make this possible.”

Sherell's story

Sherell has battled multiple and severe mental health issues for many years, leading to her being hospitalised several times. But with the support of the Recovery Co-ordinator service, Sherell, who is studying for a Master’s in Astrophysics, is proof mental health problems and academic study are not incompatible.
