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 help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, and grief. 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.
