We’re delighted to announce that our next course,  Connect, Create, Participate, will start in a few weeks time, on September 5th, and will take place here in the Recovery College in DCU. We are now accepting applications. This is the third time this course has run in Ireland, as well as being run internationally in Scotland, Finland and France. The course will run for 4 weeks on Tuesdays: 10-2 on the first 3 weeks, and 10-4 on week 4.  (poster to be updated). The course has proved to be a great success for participants in developing self confidence and self worth, as well as building social connections with peers. It’s a great opportunity for anyone with lived experience, family members or professionals who is looking to build confidence and make connections. It really has transformed peoples’ everyday lives in a real way, and we can’t wait to witness the process for our next group of people. If you or someone you know is interested, please register your interest here and we will be in touch soon to confirm attendance. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the course. We look forward to receiving your applications!

Launching the Integrated community care pathway for Dual Diagnosis along with a supportive services map on the 20th July.

We are delighted to announce that we will be launching the Integrated community care pathway for Dual Diagnosis along with a supportive services map on the 20th July. The North East Inner City has great potential to become a beacon of hope as a trauma informed community that promotes and celebrates recovery.  We would like to thank the community for their support throughout the project and raise awareness of recovery by celebrating the launch in the local Community space that is D-Light Studios. Join us for conversation with Trauma experts Dr Liam MacGabhann and Dr Sharon Lambert, music from local talent and rising musician Ciarán Moran with local guests on the day.

The pathway and map have been co-created by the community for the community through meaningful engagement including forums,workshops and core group meetings over the last nine months.

The goal of the pathway and map is to provide

– A visual resource on what a pathway for support and recovery might look like. Promoting integrated ways of working that encourage interagency collaboration in supporting an individual and/or families person centred journey of recovery

– A user-friendly resource map for finding information about local community services that can support people through all stages when experiencing issues regarding mental health and substance use. Information will include service details, specific contacts, opening hours, what supports services offer, how to refer etc
