We want your feedback for Online Classes!
The Recovery Center of Hamilton County is a Peer Run Organization that supports residents of Hamilton County (Ohio) who are working on their recovery from mental health struggles. Monday through Friday, we have classes on wellness, creative expression, recovery education, personal growth and more.
Our goal is to offer an environment of learning that promotes wellness and recovery. We want to help individuals reconnect the pieces of their lives that became disconnected when they were struggling. We do this through peer support and a goal-oriented class schedule. Peer support is an excellent compliment to clinical services. It utilizes shared experiences as a means to foster the recovery of other individuals struggling with their mental health.
Recently the Recovery Center has expanded services to Transitional Aged Youth by providing them with after-hours events. We encourage you to check out our new initiative RC After Dark.
The Recovery Center of Hamilton County is dedicated to helping individuals recover the things we lose when struggling with mental health issues. Recover your self-esteem, self-awareness, health, safety, and ability to socialize. We'd love to meet you and introduce you to a community of people who understand.

What is an average day like at the Recovery Center of Hamilton County?
A day in the life of the Recovery Center is filled with community, support, and healing. We start the day with a morning meeting at 10:15am where we share our weekly agenda and end it with a fun game of trivia. At 10:30am our classes begin, with a break for lunch at 12:45pm. Each class you take is about an hour long and is wellness and recovery-focused. There are many informative, helpful, and fun classes you can take based upon your recovery goals such as Journaling for Recovery, Healing the Shame That Binds You, Yoga, Healthy Cooking, Media Madness, Coping Skills, Clay & Sculpture, Meditation, Weight & Aerobics Training and more! Our instructors have all experienced mental illness and are here to help you in your recovery journey. A sense of community is found here and we hope through RCHC you can discover not only recovery but new friendships and knowledge to guide you through life.

The Recovery Center has meant life to me. We are all so lucky to have such an amazing place in our city. I would not have made the progress I have made without the Recovery Center. Blessings to All the Staff and All the Members at the Recovery Center. You have really meant LIFE to me.
Brian, Recovery Center Member & Staff
Without the Recovery Center, I am not sure I would feel as good as I do these days. Before, I was struggling to make it through. Now, I’m working, I’m returning back to the person I was, and I’m giving back to the Recovery Center through my volunteering efforts. This place has truly changed my life.
Emotional wellness encompasses optimism, self-esteem, self-acceptance and the ability to experience and cope with feelings independently and inter-personally. Emotional wellness includes: practicing self-care; fostering inner resources and resiliency; finding unique ways to cope with stress; creating satisfying relationships; empathizing with others; being realistic about expectations and time; knowing when to ask for help, coping effectively with life and creating satisfying relationships
Speaking Your Truth
In order to bust the stigma surrounding mental illness, the narrative needs to be changed by providing real life examples of people who break stereotypes about mental illness. Staff and members of the Recovery Center do this every day by sharing their story with the community, raising awareness and educating the public about mental illness.
