We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well with everything that is going on in the world right now.

In line with NHS and government advice, we are not currently offering in person Recovery College courses.  The health and wellbeing of our students and staff is hugely important to us.  We are passionate about the role Sussex Recovery College has to play at this time and are working hard behind the scenes to develop different ways we can offer our courses.

In the meantime we have added a Covid-19 tab to our website where we will add helpful resources for you and we also have a twitter page,  https://twitter.com/SusRecColl  which has all the latest updates and useful information.

About Recovery College

Recovery College offers educational courses that focus on mental health and recovery. We design our courses specially to increase your knowledge and skills and help promote self-management. The aim is to enable you to take control by becoming an expert in your own wellbeing, so you can get on with your life despite mental health challenges – whether yours or those of someone close to you.

We serve the whole of West and East Sussex and, in addition to our full adult curriculum, our Discovery College provides courses for young people aged up to 20, their parents and other family members.

Courses are free to adults of all ages. Whether you’re looking to develop your knowledge and skills in self-management, you support somebody with mental health-related challenges, or you work in the mental health services, we’re delighted to welcome you on a learning journey.
