Well-Being and Recovery College Estonia

We believe that personal recovery is truly possible and an inclusive reality

In the Well-Being and Recovery College Estonia we learn and share experience in the mental health and life skills subject. We create opportunities for continuing education and rehabilitation. We work with people whose ability to manage their daily activities and life in the community is affected by mental health challenges. The focus is on a person’s strengths, values, and areas where people need support, not a mental disorder.
