27 Aug CMHA recognizes Recovery Month 2020
September is Recovery Month and CMHA York Region and South Simcoe 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 York Region and South Simcoe offers a variety of programs to assist people at different phases of their mental health journey. To view our various offerings, check out our programs page.
Recovery looks different for everyone. We must continue to speak openly about addiction 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.
