Brighton and Hove Recovery College, offer educational courses as a route to recovery from mental health challenges.
All their courses are FREE and designed and delivered by people with lived experience of mental health challenges, together with clinical staff and other professionals.
The College is provided by Southdown, in partnership with the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and as part of the Community Roots network of mental health support.
They offer courses focusing on recovery and self-management skills. Prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, courses and workshops were offered in a range in length from one-day workshops to longer courses running for eight weeks, on subjects such as ‘Mindfulness’ and ‘Managing Anxiety’. The courses were based at community venues across Brighton and Hove including our Learning and Community Hub at Frederick Place and Preston Park Recovery Centre.
At present, they are not holding courses and workshops in a classroom setting and are instead offering online sessions and support.
Their upcoming online Summer Term will run from 7th June to 13th August and sees a variety of clinical courses such as Managing Depression, Managing Anxiety and Living with Bipolar, as well as new additions to their non-clinical courses such as Exploring Relaxation.
