Yesterday 10 April, the ACT Minister for Mental Health officially opened the ACT Recovery College.
Billy T's welcome to Country and smoking ceremony set the tone for the rest of the morning, Thank you, Billy, for sharing such a powerful welcome to our new venture.
Thanks also go to all our speakers, Simon Viereck, Bruno Aloisi, and Shane Rattenbury, for talking about the journey we have been on for the last five years, the support we have from ACT Health and the amazing things that a Recovery College can achieve with the support of the community.
Leanne Stevens and Jessica MacDonald were amazing, talking about what a recovery college would mean to them to all the people wandering around the College after Shane and Simon cut the ribbon to open the College.
Tess and I now are working on the next phase, preparing to take enrolments, getting educators organised, courses completed and putting a governance structure in place.
Please keep an eye on our website www.recovereycollegeact.org for details of courses, educator profiles and other items of interest.
