Share Your Story during Recovery Month
Across the country, people in recovery are celebrating their successes and sharing them with others in an effort to educate the public about treatment, reduce stigma and inspire others that recovery is possible.
Every September, Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS) recognizes Recovery Month by sharing personal stories of hope, resilience and recovery from individuals in San Mateo County who are living with and/or recovering from a substance use and/or mental health condition. We seek brief narratives from individuals reflecting diverse perspectives who are interested in sharing their story publicly. Stories from family members’ perspectives are also welcome.
Narratives may be shared in Wellness Matters (BHRS’ online newsletter), on the BHRS blog, or other San Mateo County Health communications and social media channels, such as facebook. See an example of past stories published.
Stories are due August 2, 2019. Please refer to the guidelines to learn more about submitting your story.
