September is Recovery Month and CMHA Niagara joins organizations around the world in recognizing this important event. According to Addictions & Mental Health Ontario (AMHO), 22 per cent of Canadians will be affected by addiction in their lifetime. Recovery Month gives them the opportunity to share stories, talk about treatment options, and reduce the stigma surrounding addiction.
CMHA Niagara is proud to be participating in Recovery Day Niagara on Saturday, September 12, 2020 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Learn more about this virtual event at https://www.facebook.com/events/626809014633462.
Recovery looks different for everyone. We must continue to speak openly about addition so those struggling know they are not alone. To show support, members of the public are encouraged to share their stories and use the #RecoveryMonth hashtag on social media.
