Conferences, training and consultancy


We have organised three international Refocus on Recovery conferences (in 2010, 2012, and 2014) in collaboration with the charity Rethink Mental Illness. Some of the presentations from the these conferences are in the Recovery resources section of this website. We are organising Refocus on Recovery 2017 in Nottingham, in September 2017.  Click here for details.


Our expert team organises training courses in recovery, or can offer bespoke training for mental health trusts or individual teams.


We can also act as consultants to policy-making organisations and service-providers, advising on the best way to develop recovery-promoting mental health services and to implement evidence-based recovery-orientated practice.
