What is Co-Delivery?

Co-Delivery is a model by which each course is delivered by an expert by experience and training qualifications and an expert by profession.

The educational philosophy of the Mayo Recovery College is grounded in the college’s commitment to a general humanistic, person centred and developmental perspective. This perspective has evolved from consultation and deliberation with external advisors and those with lived experience of mental illness.
The educational position of the Recovery College is person-centred. Person-centred in that it is developmental and facilitative and that it seeks to encourage students through participation to “recognise the connections between their individual problems and experiences and the social contexts in which they are embedded”.
The aim of Recovery education is to educate on, discuss and de-mystify Mental Health and related issues in a “trialogical” manner (people afflicted with mental health problems, family, friends, professionals and the wider community); and to assist people to imagine and realise a desirable future.
