Helping Hands October: Recovery
IAM Peer Volunteers:
For October, we address “Recovery”. Recovery is an important concept for anyone experiencing an issue with substance abuse AND/OR mental health. Mental health issues are increasing due to isolation caused by covid and are primarily increasing anxiety and depression. Additionally, the divide our society is experiencing in a number of areas is driving much of the anxiety, as many issues become emotional in nature. Issues around vaccination are the most prominent driver of anxiety currently.
The October Helping Hands addresses what recovery is, what services are available and the elements of a recovery plan. Recovery is a continuing process.
As always, thank you for the good care you are giving to your co-workers. It is important for them to have someone they know will be confidential and that they can trust to go to when they are experiencing difficulty
