Welcome to Recovery Self Help Method, Ireland


Physical Meetings Opening Again Soon !

During the COCID19  pandemic many face to face Recovery meetings were  on hold. However, these meetings are now beginning to open again. Please check the following page for the latest updates [link]


Recovery Self Help Method, Ireland is a HSE-funded, charity, that provides a specialised form of cognitive-behavioural training to its members. There are no fees, and people can come for 5 weeks, or even 5 years; whatever you need to help you get better.

This Recovery method has helped thousands of people live more peaceful and productive lives, despite severe mental health problems, such as anxiety, bipolar disorders and depression. 

Clinical research published in the American Journal of Psychiatry and over 75 years of practice use, has shown that people who use the Recovery method use fewer tranquillisers, less medication in general, and need less psychological support from others.


To get well and improve your mental health you should;

  • - Read and study the book 'Mental Health Through Will Training' or other Recovery materials.
  • - Regularly attend Recovery Meetings.
  • - Practice the Recovery principles in everyday life.
