CMHA Edmonton Recovery College

Course Description:

At CMHA Edmonton Recovery College, our educational-based approach focuses on helping people recognize and develop their own resourcefulness and awareness in order to support themselves or their loved one’s recovery journey. All of our courses are developed and delivered in partnership with our peer supporters who are experts by experience: they have their own story of a mental health or substance concern, or are supporting a loved one.

Everyone is welcome to attend our free courses. No previous experience is required and with a variety of courses to choose from, there is something for everyone.

Our CMHA Edmonton Recovery College courses are interactive and create positive learning experiences, emphasizing connection, hope and belonging. An emphasis is placed on individual’s talents and strengths. Our courses inspire optimism, encourage students to consider future opportunities, and more people towards personal empowerment. Recovery is a journey, not a destination.
