    Welcome to Mayo Recovery College

    Based at GMIT Castlebar, the Mayo Recovery College has emerged as a significant social and educational innovation since its inception in 2013.

    This unique service aims to support, maintain and promote positive mental health in the community and to foster hopeful positive conversations about human distress and the challenges associated with poor mental health. Our mission is to advance personal recovery through vibrant adult education. This is a service for all in our community and I encourage you to get involved. The Mayo College also has a sister college for the Roscommon East Galway area, REGARI and is allied with a physical health adult education programme called Self care to Wellness with which we share many values..

    I hope you find the website a useful resource and please do not hesitate to get in touch for further information, clarification or even a chat.
