What is Recollect?

RECOLLECT 2 is a five-year programme of work to better understand Recovery Colleges in England. As they are rapidly expanding, we want to explore how Recovery Colleges might benefit those that use them by exploring the impact of Recovery Colleges on student outcomes. This project has been approved by North West – Greater Manchester West Research Ethics Committee.

Can I Take Part?

You can take part in RECOLLECT 2 if you have recently enrolled at a Recovery College participating in RECOLLECT 2 (this includes ACL Essex), are aged 18 or over, are accessing local secondary or tertiary NHS mental health services (e.g. a community mental health team, assertive outreach team, outpatient clinic).

What does taking part involve?

Taking part involves completing a set of questionnaires at four different time periods over a year; when you first join the Recovery College, then 4, 8 and 12 months afterwards. You can complete the questionnaires either on paper, online, over the phone, via video call or you can be sent a copy by post.
The questionnaire should take about an hour to complete.

You don’t have to complete them all in one go. A member of the research team can walk you through the questionnaires and will give you options on how to complete them.

How is my participation recognised?

We provide a £15 voucher for each questionnaire you complete (total £60 for all 4 timepoints)..
