Recovery College (Brighton & Hove)

Recovery College
Hide on full page view?: 

Delivered as a partnership with the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, the Brighton and Hove Recovery College uses education in a supportive learning environment to help people with mental health challenges become experts in their own self-care and recovery. It is part of the Sussex Recovery College which has campuses across East and West Sussex.

Courses are co-produced and co-delivered by people with lived experience of mental health challenges and people who have gained experience through training or work. They range from one-day workshops to longer courses running for eight weeks, on subjects including ‘Managing Depression’, ‘Building Confidence’, ‘Cycling for Recovery’ and 'Chanting and Drumming'.

The courses are based at community venues across Brighton and Hove including our Learning and Community Hub at Frederick Place and our Preston Park Recovery Centre.
