We are a collaboration of partners who want to make it easy for everyone to access learning and activities that promote wellbeing and good mental health.
The college is open to any adult living in Northumberland who wants to improve their own wellbeing and/or the health and wellbeing of someone they care for or support.
The support we offer
We focus on learning, building people’s skills and knowledge and activities that promote physical and mental wellbeing. Some may be based around getting physically fit and some are just to help you find really fun things to do. We don’t provide therapy or clinical interventions.
Our sessions are run by a wide range of people. Some have been designed and are run by people with experience of mental health conditions and professionals who work with them, some are run by groups, organisations or individuals working in the community and some are offered by volunteers who want to share their passion for a hobby or interest with others.
The college isn’t a building, the college is the people involved, the students and the supporters.
Some activities and courses are accessed on-line and available across Northumberland, other activities are arranged to meet the specific needs of students in that locality and will take place in local community resources.
We currently have five branches of the college:
- North Northumberland
- Cramlington, Bedlington and Seaton Valley
- Castle Morpeth
- Blyth and Ashington
