Recovery College through Social Media and ‘Virtual Classrooms


The Somerset Wellbeing and Learning Community (Recovery College) are pleased to announce that they now have a Facebook page. From this page people can join the Facebook group, this is a closed group and membership is dependent on having registered as a student or tutor with SWALC or being a member of Somerset partnership Staff.

There is already a lot of information on the page that may be of interest to you and your clients – a daily live Guided Meditation at 9am by Jade Lucas, a daily Isolation Art Class by Sally Clark, information about “Self Care when the news is terrifying” etc. plus the opportunity to join conversations with other students. We will soon be launching an interactive webinar course on maintaining a mental wellbeing journal through the pandemic and other podcasts and interactive courses are being prepared. From our Facebook page you or your clients will be able to find information on the North Yorkshire Recovery College with whom we are collaborating and sharing resources in order to continue to promote personal recovery based education and support at this very difficult time. We are planning an increasing number of interactive teaching and learning sessions to support everyone with wellbeing and personal recovery.

To access the page go to:

www.facebook.com/SomersetWALC 

Please like and join us as well as recommending this to your clients/patients/service users.

 We hope that everyone benefits from the Facebook page and the interactive courses we are starting to make available. The closed group can be of great support for people to feel connected with like-minded others, particularly at this time when things are so uncertain and there is so much that can feel beyond a person’s own span of control.

If you or someone you know would like to contribute to this effort please contact the Recovery College on the SWALC mobile 07342 063735 and leave a message if you get the answerphone.
