Dear Students,

A very Happy New Year to you all.  We're busy planning for our Spring Term which will run from Monday 7th February until Friday 8th April 2022. 

Because of the current situation with covid we'll be offering online only courses and workshops for most of February.  We hope to be back in the classroom in March.  We'll have over 30 courses and workshops on offer and they'll be available to book very soon via the website. 

To find out more about whats on offer come to our Virtual Open Day on

Please be aware that all the in person open days we planned (13th January Crawley, 18th January Worthing, 19th January Eastbourne and 20th January Hastings have now been cancelled).

Warm wishes,

The Recovery College Team

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.
