Community Care Supports National Recovery Month - September 2013

WHAT IS RECOVERY MONTH?

Recovery Month is a national celebration of recovery, which is observed the month of September. It promotes the benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental health and substance use conditions. We can and do recover! There are many ways to promote a recovery message. We can celebrate our recovery, thank service providers for their work, and let people know that we are part of our communities.

This year's theme for National Recovery Month is: Join the Voices of Recovery - Together on Pathways to Wellness. Community Care supports the positive message of recovery, resilience, and whole life wellness for all. Join us in celebrating National Recovery Month in September.

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?

Members, family, friends, and providers can join together to help support Recovery Month. Some ways to participate include: attending or helping organize an event in your community, sharing your own recovery story or highlighting how you play a recovery role in your community, and sharing information about recovery, support, and wellness pathways and resources with others.

PLANNING AN EVENT?

For help with identifying and planning community recovery month events, ways to reach people, or just how to get the recovery message out, please visit SAMHSA's website. This website contains a Recovery Month Toolkit, flyers, brochures, posters, and links to information on planning and posting events.

Community Care would like to know about your Recovery Month activities and will post them on our website. If you need assistance in promoting or posting an event, please contact: Sarah Goldstein, Recovery Consultant goldsteinse@ccbh.com.
