About this cause
RECOVERY Assistance Dogs helps people across the UK recover from mental health problems through non-invasive therapy involving assistance dogs. It provides free dog training classes for mental health "survivors" and also trains dogs to assist those too unwell or under-resourced to train their own recovery dog.
How this cause brings people in the community together
At RECOVERY Assistance Dogs for Mental Health we have noticed that more and more people are suffering with mental health problems. Yet many of these people have dogs that are helping them to cope, get out the house and enjoy life. We want people to do more activities with their dog, such as agility, companionship, behaviour improvements and social inclusion.
