Happy September and happy National Recovery Month! Every September thousands of treatment and recovery programs and facilities celebrate Recovery Month. They talk about the strides made by those
in recovery and share success stories. In doing so, everyone helps to increase awareness and foster a greater understanding of both mental and substance use disorders! An important part of successful recovery is having an Aftercare Plan set up with a professional, so we included a segment with some information and options surrounding recovery aftercare. Another very important subject we wanted
to talk about in this months newsletter is World Suicide Prevention Day. The goal of this day is to
promote inclusion and empowerment to address self harm with preventative action. This goal has
been shown to be successful with the support of healthcare providers and other community
members, positive and informative messaging aimed at the general public, and encouraging open discussions with anyone who may be at risk. By working together we can continue to advocate for
better mental health support all across this country. If you or a loved one are struggling and need resources please call the new mental health crisis line at 9-8-8, or reach out to us at
Discovery Counseling and we will help however we can.
