About us

The CARe Academy is part of The CARe Network which is an International network that serves professionals, service users and organisations to promote the transition to community-based and recovery-based care.

The Train-the-Trainer Programme provides the knowledge and skills to become a Certified Trainer in the CARe Model.


The CARe Model is meant to support persons in vulnerable situations, due to psychiatric conditions, addiction, homelessness, poverty and marginalisation in their recovery process. The CARe Model is aimed at increasing Quality of Life, self-reliance and community participation.

The CARe Network is active in the field of mental health care, social care and welfare services for persons with psychiatric, learning and physical disabilities.

We connect practice, research and education.
