What is Recovery Education?

Recovery Education is the process by which individuals explore, assimilate and create the knowledge required for recovery in their own lives or in the lives of those they support. It involves providing educational services to, and within, local communities (HSE, 2017).

Recovery Education takes a strengths-based and adult education approach which offers the choice to engage in learning opportunities. It is influenced by the values of self-direction, personal experience, ownership, diversity, and hopefulness (HSE, 2017).

Recovery Education uses an adult education approach to facilitate mental health recovery. Module/course content is co-produced and co-facilitated by people with lived experience of mental health challenges, family members/carers/supporters, service providers and community partners.
