Each September, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) (https://www.samhsa.gov), within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) (https://www.hhs. gov/), sponsors National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) (https://recoverymonth.gov). This observance celebrates the millions of Americans who are in recovery from mental and substance use disorders, reminding us that treatment is efective and that people can and do recover. It also serves to help reduce the stigma and misconceptions that cloud public understanding of mental and substance use disorders, potentially discouraging others from seeking help. The 2019 Recovery Month theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger,” emphasizes the need to share resources and build networks across the country to support the many paths to recovery—engaging passionate community members along the way. It reminds us that mental and substance use disorders afect all of us and that we are all part of the solution.

The Recovery Month observance will highlight inspiring stories to help thousands of people from all walks of life fnd the path to hope, health, and overall wellness. During the 30th anniversary of Recovery Month, communities across the nation will refect on their positive strides and their plans to make recovery support services more accessible so people can live meaningful and productive lives. Over the years, recoveryoriented organizations have also played an essential role in states, cities, towns, and neighborhoods to help countless people start and sustain their recovery. The 2019 observance underscores the importance of relying on one another, recognizing what brings us together rather than what drives us apart, and promotes the overall goals of health and well-being for all Americans. Mental and substance use disorders have left their mark on every American in one way or another. They affect individuals from all walks of life—and community members must band together to show that recovery is possible for everyone. Mental and substance use disorders do not come from outside of the community. They emerge from within it. Communities, therefore, have a central role in helping address their impact.

Participating in the Walk for Recovery is a great way to show support, celebrate recovery, reduce stigma and inspire others!
