Education & Recovery report launched

A research report on achieving positive outcomes in education for adults with mental health difficulties in Bray has been launched.

The report, entitled ‘Education and Recovery’, is about research commissioned by Bray Adult Education Network and conducted by Dr. Margaret Crean, with funding from Bray Area Partnership, Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board and National Learning Network.

One-to-one interviews and focus groups were used during the research to find out about the educational and support needs of people with mental health difficulties accessing adult education in Bray.

The research found there was a need for flexible and transitional programmes and a focus on preparing people for success through peer support, group participation and social engagement. Another recommendation was to ensure that people with mental health difficulties are not excluded from training and education schemes that are focused on ‘activation’.
