The Clarendon Recovery College is your community centre for lifelong learning and an educational route to recovery for people experiencing mental health issues. Our main timetable of courses are free for all Haringey residents aged 18 and over. The Clarendon is also available to people who do not live and work in Haringey, but we charge for this provision.
The Recovery College is particularly aimed at people who are using mental health services and their supporters, who include carers, friends or family and staff working in mental health services. The Recovery College is available to people who are interested in knowing more about maintaining their own wellbeing and good mental health or the mental health of people they know. A growing number of our courses are jointly co-produced and delivered by people with lived experience of mental illness and by mental health practitioners.
You can take courses in whatever way suits you or you can discuss which courses complement each other when you enrol.
We are open for enrolment any day of the week:
- Monday, 12.30-4pm
- Tuesday to Friday, 10am to 4pm
We operate on a three term basis annually, so we also have an enrolment week at the beginning of every term.

Our guide has courses that range from 'Understanding Psychosis' to 'Skills in Silver Jewellery Making', from 'Relaxation and Meditation' to 'Five a Side Football'. These are courses to help with understanding and living with complex diagnoses, for the discovery of skills and talents and for personal wellbeing.
As well as the courses on offer, the Clarendon Recovery College is a friendly and welcoming environment where you will meet new people and make new friends. See information on our Hideaway Café below.
If you require interpreting services or information in a different language, we will be happy to arrange it.

Our café, open to the public with free wi-fi, sells good honest food at fair prices. Come and get away from the hustle and bustle of the High road at the Hideaway. Sit inside, or outside in our quiet secluded garden. The Hideaway cafe is open Monday-Friday, 8.45am to 3.30pm, for tea and coffee, drinks, snacks and lunch. Come with friends, co-workers or by yourself and be sure of a warm welcome, plus tasty and good value refreshments.
