For 29 years, SAMHSA has worked to educate Americans about effective, evidence-based treatment and recovery services, highlighting the fact that people can and do recover! Through National Recovery Month (Recovery Month), SAMHSA aims to help bring awareness to mental and substance use disorders; encourage those in need to seek support; and make recovery the standard.
Join us via live stream Thursday, September 6 from 10am-11am, as we officially kick off Recovery Month 2018 – a national observance held every September to celebrate individuals living in recovery and to educate the public on mental and substance use disorders. The event will feature SAMHSA officials and invited guests in a panel discussion to celebrate people living in recovery. Click here https://www.hhs.gov/live/live-2/index.htm to watch the event.
This year’s theme is “Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home, Purpose, and Community.” The 2018 Recovery Month toolkit, television and radio public service announcements (PSAs), banners and logos are now available to view and download here.
We encourage you to share these materials throughout the month of September, post the Recovery Month banner on your website, and help spread the possibility of recovery!
