In May 2012 The Inner City Recovery Cave was opened by Dr Peter McGeorge and in the afternoon the 1st workshop for the Deck of Dreams project was held. 50 people attended the opening and workshop.


The Inner City Recovery Cave is a space on the 3rd floor of the O'Brien Centre inside St Vincents Hospital. It will allow people with an interest in Recovery to network and share ideas that will promote that St Vincents is becoming a recovery-focused service.


The Recovery Cave will be open on a Wednesday afternoon between from 1 pm till 4 pm. The Deck of Dreams Project is about gathering a col­lec­tion of hopes and dreams from peo­ple who have been impacted by men­tal health issues. The hopes and dreams will be expressed cre­atively and trans­formed into a deck of 52 cards. It will be like a portable gallery of good­ness with pos­i­tive, inspi­ra­tion, quirky and real mes­sages of hope around men­tal health.

Jennifer Lee, Day 2 Day worker with The Wayside Chapel starting working on this creative idea in 2010 In 2011 Jennifer submitted a poster to the Inner City Mental Health Recovery Working group event titled Looking Forward Looking Back 3 and won 1st prize for her entry. A small working group from The Wayside Chapel and St Vincents has been set up to help Jennifer further develop this project.
