This case study describes how Norfolk and Suffolk Recovery College coproduced a course with Szara Froud, a mental health professional and Anastacia, who has bipolar disorder.
Recovery Colleges are an increasingly common therapeutic resource that empower people with mental health problems to become experts in their own recovery. They often centre on the ethos of co-production to create services for people with lived experience to develop skills, understand mental health, identify goals and support access to other opportunities.
Szara, who works for Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, worked with Anastacia, who is a freelance artist, to develop an art-led Recovery College course in the region.
