September is Recovery Month and CMHA Toronto 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.
Recovery looks different for everyone. CMHA Toronto provides comprehensive services to individuals in the city of Toronto to support their mental health recovery. We know that a place to live, meaningful work and a caring community are integral to resilience and recovery. Click here to read about our programs and services.
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.
If you or someone you know needs help, contact CMHA Toronto at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-789-7957. For more information on Recovery Month, visit the Addictions & Mental Health Ontario website: www.amho.ca/recovery-month/
