Recovery Learning Communities

Information about DMH Recovery Learning Communities

Recovery Learning Communities (RLCs) are peer-run networks of self help/peer support, information and referral, advocacy and training activities. Training in trauma-healing, recovery concepts and tools, advocacy forums and social and recreational events are all part of what goes on in a Recovery Learning Community.

The doors are open to all people who are struggling with their mental health. RLCs work collaboratively with mental health providers, other human service agencies and the community at large to forward the mission of community integration and respect for people with mental health conditions. RLC activities are designed to appeal to the range of people in the community, including people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds and people of all co-occurring disabilities. RLCs are for everyone.
