    All physical classes & programmes in the Recovery Colleges of Mayo, Roscommon & Galway have been deferred until further notice.

    However, each of the colleges are offering recovery education sessions online with tutorial workshops on how to take part.

    Please click HERE for Galway's online prospectus. Working online can be surprisingly like being in the college. Please contact us if you are unsure of working in this way.

    We will advise all students of our expected date of return to our respective college buildings.

    Welcome to Galway Recovery College

    Based at the Institute for Lifecourse & Society Building (ILAS), NUIG North Campus, the Galway 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 Galway College also has a sister college for the Mayo area and 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.
