What is Co-CREATE?
Co-CREATE is evidence informed and a fully co-produced approach which has been co-designed specifically for understanding the dynamics of practitioner/participant engagement. Co-CREATE supports partnership/relational focused approaches for group/individual engagement while also showing how we can develop personal – as well as accredited outcomes. Through Co-CREATE, we coach practitioners and participants alike to recognise that the tools for engagement exist with the individual – with their personal experiences and interests. Co-CREATE then uses participant generated research in order to explore and then to apply this individual experience to new opportunities. Contact us for more information.
RecoverED offers formative (non-accredited) Co-CREATE Training. Each session runs for approximately 2-3 hours and includes discussion, practical exercises and exploration of key themes in service provision. The sessions below can be studied as a block or otherwise studied as individual sessions. Each session is influenced by an acute understanding of co-creation, co-production, and how these apply to relation informed recovery, educational practice and theory.
- Principles of recovery
- A critical understanding of the relationship between recovery and co-production
- Building fit-for-purpose learning pathways in service provision
- Exploring group facilitation skills

- A philosophical encounter with identity and emotional wellness
What will you gain from attending these sessions?
Co-CREATE is an interactive exploration of the critical and practical understanding of participant engagement, recovery and the stigma which still surrounds discussions of emotional distress. Each participant will leave with a practical understanding of the Co-CREATE toolkit and how this can support a participant’s professional practice in the development of participant centred engagement. Participants will also have an opportunity to explore what good practice and effective decision making might be when discussing person focused engagement (relationships), education, recovery and co-creation.

RecoverED delivers the Mental Health Awareness (Wales)
The Mental Health Awareness (Wales) is a thoroughly well researched session which has drawn some extensive, positive attention since its launch in 2016. The session has been influenced by a number of key factors – namely:
- experience from within the field of mental health
- education and the role education has in personal understanding of mental health (emotional wellness) and wellbeing
- peer reviewed with people who have lived experience of emotional discontent/distress
- a recognition that there is a need to move beyond a medical model of mental health and include social (relational) factors too
This unique and powerful 3 hour interactive session is now an essential component of the University of South Wales’ Care Sciences studies which requires all students across the faculty to engage with the Mental Health Awareness (Wales) session.
The Mental Health Awareness (Wales) session critically explores with you the principles and factors which underpin our understanding of emotional health and wellbeing. Taking you on a journey our experienced presenters will explore with you the complex dynamics of mental health and wellbeing, understanding some of the symptoms of distress and some of the key attitudes, processes and activities we can employ to support our own and others mental health and wellbeing. You will also be able to critically engage with some of the social causes of distress. The Mental Health Awareness (Wales) session does not teach you how to treat or diagnose mental health or substance use issues but rather challenges you to see the basic underlying principles of engagement in such a way you can recognise for yourself the opportunities to make a difference to your own and others wellbeing/lives.
Upon completion of the The Mental Health Awareness (Wales) participants will:
- have improved mental health literacy
- be able to help participants recognise some of the signs and symptoms of emotional distress
- have practical understanding of the challenges the modern era poses to our understanding of and dealing with the need to manage wellbeing and mental health
In short, the Mental Health Awareness (Wales) session encourages us to critically engage with our understanding of mental health and wellbeing towards a more realistic and active response to developing support initiatives.
