September is National Recovery Month

National Recovery Month is an observance in September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can empower those with a mental illness and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life. Recovery Month provides a vehicle for everyone to celebrate these accomplishments.

The observance reinforces the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover.

I am the mother of two boys and the owner of emotionally naked, a site that reached a quarter million people in its first 18 months. I am a writer and professional public speaker on the topics of suicide, addiction, mental illness, and grief and my book, Diary of a Broken Mind, will be published in the fall. I lost my youngest son, Charles, 20, to suicide June 5, 2015. As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory. Professional Speaker Website
