September is National Recovery Month

WebBannerSquareSeptember is National Recovery Month. In its 25th year, Recovery Month promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance use disorders. This year's theme, "Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out," encourages people to openly speak up about mental and substance use disorders and the reality of recovery, and promotes ways individuals can use to recognize behavioral health issues and reach out for help. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.

PRPSN has several activities in the works. Stay tuned and join the conversation on our Facebook Page, (Like us!!) blog, and Twitter feed. Get more info about how you can support Recovery in your community at: http://www.recoverymonth.gov/

Speak up and reach out!
