5 WAYS is new name for the Recovery Academy in Leeds

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.
