Dear Students,

We are really pleased to have been able to reach so many of you through our online workshops over the past few months. By the end of term we will have delivered 26 workshops to over 150 students - something we didn't think would be possible when we started this journey back in March. We are very grateful to you all for making this happen. Its been wonderful to see familiar faces and welcome new ones onto our courses.

The Recovery College Team will be taking a well earned break when the current term ends on 11th August. We will be back with an exciting new programme in the Autumn and will be updating this page once we have our launch date.

In the meantime there are still lots of great opportunities to connect and get involved.

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.
