Free mental health courses

​People who experience mental health issues can now enrol for free self-care educational courses on Tuesday (January 13).

The Recovery College is a joint venture between Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and local voluntary organisations.

The courses allow people to become experts in their self-care and recovery through education and learning. They are also open to their supporters and carers. An open day will take place at Cavendish House in Breeds Place from 1pm to 4pm.

Courses are co-produced and co-run by peer trainers with personal experience of mental health challenges, alongside mental health professionals. A prospectus details the wide range of courses available and students receive a certificate on completion. All courses are free to adults of all ages with mental health related challenges, their friends, families, carers and mental health professionals. They will run from February to March 2015 at three campus sites across East Sussex.
