Recovery in Mental Health GMIT Mayo Campus

Certificate in Recovery in Mental Health (SPA)

Special Purpose Award (Level 8)

Why Study?: 

Recovery in mental health implies focusing on the strengths and opportunities for a service user rather than the limitations and symptoms of mental illness. 

Such an approach emphasizes the concepts of hope and optimism and are integral values in the recovery approach.  The aim of this module is to enable learners to develop an in depth working knowledge of the principles and practice of recovery for the mental health service user and to critically evaluate the range of skills necessary to work innovatively and collaboratively with service users, carers, and their families and appropriate agencies. 

This course is aimed at mental health professionals working in the area of rehabilitation and recovery in mental health.

GMIT is planning for blended delivery to be a possibility for Semester II in this 2020-2021 academic year.  Lifelong learning programmes are planned with "remote delivery" of classes, and this will be done within existing blended programme delivery models and times. This will also allow for some level of classroom delivery if Covid-19 restrictions allow later the academic year.
