An innovative new partnership is being launched to provide a mental health academy and recovery college in Bedfordshire and Luton.

The two organisations working together are the University of Bedfordshire and the East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT).

Free courses will run from locations across the area promoting mental wellbeing and offering help and support for everyone.

Courses, workshops and training events will focus on developing new skills, increasing understanding of mental and physical health as well as practical skills which promote independence and self worth, in addition to art, drama and other activities.

The aim is to reach out to local communities to change attitudes about mental health and offer an open door.
