About Recovery College
Recovery is a journey, not a destination
Address 426 6 St. S, Lethbridge, AB T1J 2C9
At 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 and drop-in classes. No previous experience is required and with 6 courses to choose from, there is a course for everyone.
Our 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.
If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us at 403-329-4775 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to meeting you soon.
Still have questions about our courses?
Anyone aged 16+ affected by mental health or addiction who want to explore the recovery journey and their own wellness. Those who are supporting a family or friend, as well as people working in the mental health field are welcome to attend. No referral is needed.
The majority of courses are held at CMHA Lethbridge’s Learning Centre, but we will also have classes in community venues across Lethbridge. Locations for each course can be found in the course summary.
None. All of our courses are open to everyone at all levels and at all stages of recovery. All we require is an open mind and a willingness to participate.
Our courses are friendly, informative, engaging and enjoyable to help students on their recovery journey. Two trainers co-facilitate each course – one an expert by profession, working in their field of expertise; the other an expert by experience, those who have personal experience who will share their experience as part of the course.
Nothing! All courses are free, but you must register before attending.
Our courses offer more structured learning experiences than a typical group program. They’re designed with input from qualified and experienced educators based on contemporary learning theory. Each course has clear learning outcomes and activities to explore and build knowledge.
Mentally healthy people in a healthy society.
To promote the mental health of all and support the resilience and recovery of people experiencing mental illness.
Creating programs that are designed to empower
Founded in 1918, CMHA is a national charity that helps maintain and improve mental health for all Canadians. As a nation-wide leader and champion for mental health, CMHA helps people access the community-based resources they need to build resilience and support recovery from mental illness in their own communities.
CMHA Alberta South Region (CMHA ASR) offers programs specifically designed to help provide supports and services to Lethbridge and surrounding areas.
One of the greatest assests that CMHA ASR has is its flexibility in creating and developing programs and services that meet the specific needs in Lethbridge. As things change and evolve in the city, so does the way in which CMHA ASR is able to offer supports to a wide array of people.
CMHA ASR regularly collaborates with other organizations to ensure that people accessing our programs and resources receive the best possible service. Through these partnerships and roles in community discussions CMHA ASR actively works as a voice in the community to identify and address service gaps for people facing mental illness and addictions.
As the organization constantly changes to meet the ongoing needs of the people we serve, please contact us for more information on current and specific programs and services.
