We understand how difficult a time this is for everybody, and particularly for people who experience long term health conditions.
As SLaM Recovery College is unable to offer any classroom-based workshops now, our team has been working behind the scenes to develop online content, including vlogs, webinars and e-learning.
These sessions are available to everyone, free of charge. You don’t need to be a SLaM Recovery College student or have any connection at all to South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. We just ask that you answer a few questions and let us know which sessions you’d like to be a part of, using one of the registration form links below, and we’ll then send you links to the webinars you’ve chosen.
Every Friday we will email you the details of the online learning we are offering in the following week.
N.B. If you can't make a particular live event you can still enrol and use the link we'll send you to watch a recording later on.
Here are next week's webinars (27th-31st July):

Join this three-part series to gain insight and skills that benefit your personal romantic and non-romantic relationships. It is suitable for everybody, whether you are currently single or in a relationship. The skills can be applied to partners, friends, family, colleagues, as well as those we are yet to meet.
NEW! Emotional Intelligence: the path to emotional serenity part 1 | 2:30-3:30pm | Thursday 30th July
This four-part course aims to help you develop an understanding of what emotional intelligence is, how it operates in everyday life, and why it’s important to develop & encourage it. The course will give you more confidence in interpersonal relations, and more self-awareness, enabling you to discover your personal E.Q. The program is packed full of discussions to enable all participants to learn, interactively, the components of emotional intelligence and how this relates to the mental health of service users and social care professionals alike. The more you understand E.Q., the more you can recognise and understand your emotions. And the more you can recognise and understand your emotions, the more you can learn to love them. Emotions are a key to recognising our needs, which can then be managed to enrich our lives.
Understanding Depression part 2 | 2:30pm-3:30pm | Thursday 30th July
This course runs over 4 sessions. It will focus on different aspects of depression. The content will cover:
- what depression is
- what its causes are
- what can get in the way of recovery from depression
- what professional support is available
- how we can help ourselves and support others.
Understanding the Impact of Substance Use on Mental Health part 3 | 2:30pm-3:30pm | Friday 31st July
This three-part course explores the use of substances (drugs and alcohol) and their impact on mental wellbeing. At times, using substances can appear to be a solution but it often has a longer-term impact on our wellbeing. During these webinars we will explore why this happens and what support is available to aid recovery. In this first session, we examine the reasons why people use substances.
