On the 30th of June, The Recovery Academy, run by Forward Leeds, will be renamed 5 WAYS @ the Recovery Academy. New signs have been erected and the exterior has had a fresh coat of paint to match.
The name, which was chosen by the current members, reflects the five ways to improve mental well-being. A new logo and branding has been created for 5 WAYS that reflects this.
5 WAYS takes its name from the evidence that suggests there are five steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing. They are:
- Connect with other people
- Be active and exercise
- Keep learning
- Give to others
- Be mindful
The Leeds recovery community will be celebrating the launch of the new name with an Open Mic Night on the 30th of June.
