Over 200 people attend Brighton and Hove Recovery College’s Open Day!

Recovery College Open Day Staff and Peer Trainers Spring 2019
Brighton and Hove Recovery College launched their new range of courses for the spring term yesterday at their Open Day event for new and returning students.
The Recovery College provides courses for people with an experience of mental health challenges who wish to undertake training within a supportive learning environment, as part of their self-care and recovery. The service is passionate about supporting students to achieve their goals in their recovery journey.
Courses on offer include those that focus on a student’s health and wellbeing, managing their mental health, developing life skills, and their expression and creativity.
This term will see the return of popular courses, Recovery and Discovery through Art, Personality Disorder, and Ten Power Tools for Happiness. Alongside our regular courses you will see new and exciting courses, such as Being in the Body and a new workshop called Introduction to Self- Compassion.
At the Open Day, Peer Trainers, Student Buddies, and former students were on hand to talk about the College and the courses on offer. 
Lynsey Hermann, Service Manager at the Recovery College, says,
With over 200 people attending, the Open Day was a reflection of the popularity of the College and the enthusiasm of the students we saw returning, and the new students applying. The day was positive, with a relaxing and calm feel.
One student commented that they could, “Feel the kindness in the room, and wanted to be part of that kindness.”
Registration for the spring term opened on 9 January and closes on the 16 January. The College will aim to ensure all students who register interest for courses are booked onto at least one of their choices.
