September is National Recovery Month!

This September, Mercer Council is proud to celebrate National Recovery Month!

Beginning in 1989, this month celebrates the promotion of new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, and the strength of the nation’s strong and proud recovery community. We also celebrate the dedication of service providers and communities who support recovery efforts and make recovery, in all its forms, possible.

For students in recovery, September marks #RecoveryMonth and a transition #BacktoSchool. It can be an exciting, yet often overwhelming time. One way to cope is to stay connected with supportive and trusted friends, family, and mentors. Learn more by visiting

The recovery journey isn’t just for the person with the substance use or mental health issue—it includes everyone who cares about them.”

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) seeks to increase public awareness surrounding mental health and addiction recovery every year by providing many informative and educational resources. Mercer Council is proud to support SAMHSA initiatives, and encourages all who are struggling to seek help.
