Invitation to Staying Connected and Creative Summer Festival 24th of June

Dear Recovery College Friends,  
As we near the end of our fourth year, we would would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join us for a free two hour online celebration of mental health well-being in the community.  This years’ theme is ‘Staying Connected and Creative.
Open to everyone in the community, this is a great opportunity to connect with like minded people, sample some workshops and dip into some of the inspiring creativity that helped drive our initiatives over the past four years.  This is also a great way for people new to the recovery college, to get a sense of just who we are and what we do!
How to register 
– Check out the promo below and select one of the workshops that you want to do
– Email your name, email, mobile number and importantly name the workshop you would like to attend.
– We’ll follow up by sending the zoom links for both the workshop of your choice and the follow on hour when we bring all the participants together!   
Numbers will be limited on the day, So apply early to avoid disappointment.
Who can register
This Festival Event is open to everyone over 18, with numbers limited we do prioritise people throughout the North Dublin, Louth and Meath areas, this said regardless where you are based, you are welcome to register your interest, if there’s space we’ll try and accommodate you!
Kind Regards
Recovery College Team
