Keys to Mental and Emotional Wellness Solutions!
September marks the observances of National Recovery Month, World Suicide Prevention Day and National Wellness Week.
In the United States, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), which is within the Federal Department of Health and Human Services, is a public leader and coordinator of these autumn events. These observances highlight the conviction that effective behavioral health service systems and community-wide strategies are pre-requisites for healthy and vibrant communities.
Recovery is a process which addresses the whole person. The recommended resources listed below are holistic practices to help you optimize mental and emotional wellness.
September also marks a change of seasons. With the new season, we can expect fewer daylight hours, revised schedules (work, childcare, school) and initiation of holiday planning. For some, the season of Autumn triggers seasonal affective disorder. Our next issue focuses on self-management of S.A.D and other symptoms of emotional/mental dis-ease.
