In the news, November - December 2022

Our work with universities and students gained some great traction in the media over the last month. Simon Lee, from The University of Sunderland, wrote about Recovery Friendly Universities in the Times Higher Education line, while Harm Min Specialist, Peter Da Silva, was published in The Big Issue.

November was a big month for Collegiate Recovery in the UK, as The University of Sunderland became the first UK University to sign the Recovery Connections' Recovery Friendly Pledge. But that wasn't the only prominent piece of news we had to share. Following Adam Petson's interview with BBC Radio Tees, about why Collegiate Recovery is so crucial for students, Sunderland's Simon Lee wrote this piece for Times Higher Education. The article focuses on the change needed from within UK Universities, to open up to the possibility and potential of Collegiate Recovery Programmes in the country. This article was published within days of Sunderland staff signing the pledge, at their fourth, annual mental health conference. And finally, Recovery Connections Harm Minimisation Specialist, and recent graduate from Teesside University, Peter Da Silva penned this excellent piece for The Big Issue.
