Mental Health First Aid is an eight class designed to teach skills to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance abuse disorders.
Each September Pawnee Mental Health takes time to celebrate National Recovery Month. This year’s theme, “Join the Voices of Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out,” encourages people to discuss mental health and substance use disorders and the reality that recovery is possible. It also aims to foster public understanding and acceptance about mental heath, substance use, and recovery.
In 2012, 65.9 million people in the United States were diagnosed with a mental health or substance issue. People in recovery are all around us. They are full contributors to our community, participating in business, volunteering, and providing for their families. To promote an even more accepting environment, where people feel free to join others on their path of recovery, we must reach out to them or speak up for their cause. We need to recognize that mental and/or substance use disorders can be treated, just like other health problems, such as diabetes and hypertension. We can work together to improve the overall health of our community by supporting behavioral health.
As we celebrate National Recovery Month, it is important to recognize that most people in recovery find that treatment is effective in reducing their symptoms. Treatment providers at Pawnee Mental Health have witnessed the positive reality of recovery in people’s lives as they achieve improved mental and physical health, and form stronger relationships with their family members, neighbors, and peers.
In the spirit of Recovery Month please join me in taking time to support and celebrate those people in our lives who are going through recovery. Let’s also take time to remember that people with mental health or substance issues can get better, and that they need the support of a welcoming community – one that speaks up for their cause and reaches out to lend a hand!
