We have made the difficult decision to cancel our Recovery College courses for the rest of this term; this means that all courses up to the end of term on April 3rd will no longer be running. This is due to a mix of factors which include many of our community venues closing, our clinical colleagues having to take on additional and ever-changing roles in order to keep people safe and well, and wanting to support and protect the people who learn with us and the people who work with us. We are passionate about the key role mental health services and the Sussex Recovery College will play in supporting our local communities during this time.   Over the coming weeks we will be exploring what support we can offer and how we can offer this in new and creative ways; one thing we are looking into at the moment is adopting a virtual classroom/webinar approach.
