September is National Recovery Month

Each year, National Recovery Month celebrates people recovering from mental health challenges and substance use disorders. This year’s theme is “Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home, Purpose, and Community.” The focus is on the communities, health care providers, policymakers, and organizations who together support people in recovery.

Behavioral health is an essential part of health and wellness. Preventing and treating mental health and substance use disorders contribute to a healthy lifestyle. As our nation continues to deal with the opioid epidemic, addiction, and mental health challenges, we celebrate those on the road to recovery and those supporting them on their journey.

National Recovery Month is a reminder that those of us who are struggling are not alone. Treatment and recovery are possible!

If you are struggling with behavioral health challenges, talk to your health care provider. Listen to Voices for Recovery, and learn more about National Recovery Month.

Unity Care NW Partners with Whatcom Literacy Council

Unity Care NW and Whatcom Literacy Council both care about literacy. Unity Care NW’s Reach Out and Read Program promotes childhood literacy during well-child exams. Each child between the ages of 6 months and 5 years gets a book during their well-child exam. Our providers talk to parents about early childhood development and how they can support their child’s literacy.

We recently joined Whatcom Literacy Council in also promoting adult literacy. Whatcom Literacy Council helps adults in Whatcom County improve their literacy skills and learn English. Through tutoring and small group classes, adults are able to increase their employment opportunities, improve their parenting skills, further their education, and support their child’s literacy. When our patients come in for a well-child visit, they not only receive a book, but they also receive information about Whatcom Literacy Council services.

Thanks to Whatcom Literacy Council for a great partnership!
