Abstract: Paper from TheMHS Conference 2016 Book of Proceedings: People. Authenticity Starts in the Heart. The Conference was held in Auckland, New Zealand 23 - 26 August 2016.

The Mind Recovery College™ was initiated by Mind Australia in 2013. This innovative service delivery model provides an alternative approach to mental health service delivery based on a co-production and education-based approach. The objectives of the Mind Recovery College™ are to: (1) Address health inequalities, (2) Take a rights-based approach to health development, (3) Enable co-production by persons with lived experience of mental health problems, and (4) Use adult learning to support recovery. In 2015, Mind Australia commissioned the Centre for Mental Health at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, University of Melbourne to conduct a process and preliminary outcomes evaluation. The evaluation was co-designed with Recovery College students and staff. This paper documents the progress that the Mind Recovery College™ has made in meeting its objectives and also introduces some preliminary findings from the evaluation about the student and staff experience of the College.
