Recovery Colleges by Recovery in the Bin

CAMH is working on creating a Recovery College (RC) and there have been consultations and there is an email but no website: recovery college <>. You might have heard about it in the elevator at CAMH or on your Facebook feed if you know anyone who works at CAMH. Some quick questions to consider about an RC: Who decides the goals, programming, resources, outcomes, timing and the ways the RC will relate to the broader world and social-economic-disability issues? 

Recovery in the Bin is a critical theorist and activist collective from the United Kingdom where there is a long history of Recovery Colleges. RITB is a great source for when are stuck in the loop of frustration-waiting-services-waiting-disappointment.
