Converge: A community of learners

Converge is a partnership between York St John University and mental health service providers. Find out more in our introductory video.

We provide courses for adults who use mental health services. Our courses help you develop skills in a supportive educational environment. You have the freedom to be creative, challenge yourself and discover new abilities.

Most courses take place at York St John University. Courses are taught by staff, students and people with particular expertise and their own experience of mental ill health. We also offer some courses online and by post.

Applying for a course

You can attend a Converge course if you are an adult (18 and older) and you:

  • Receive current support for a mental health issue
  • Have experienced mental health issues in the past

Courses are free of charge. They take place during term time and vary between 4 and 10 weeks in length. You can apply for a course throughout the year.
