Recovery college Arts courses project
Recovery College courses across Sussex - 2016
In 2016 Make Your Mark, funded by a Paul Hamlyn Foundation Trust Explore and Test grant, collaborated with Sussex Recovery College to develop, deliver and evaluate seven arts based recovery college courses.
Each course was co-designed and co-delivered through a collaboration between a professional artist and a peer trainer with lived experience of mental health challenges. Each course was delivered at a cultural venue in Sussex with the aim to build stronger links between the arts and health sectors to support greater access to the arts for people with mental health challenges.
The following courses were devised and delivered:
Course participants were invited to participate in an evaluation project to explore the impact of the courses on them at 3, 6 and 9 months after they took part. An article outlining the findings was published in 2018 link
