Arizona Shows Their Support for Suicide Prevention and Celebrates Recovery!

By Emily Selby, Case Manager/BHT, WestCare Arizona

In honor of National Recovery Month, WestCare Arizona sponsored and participated in several events in and around our community in September including the Third Annual Suicide Prevention Awareness Walk and the 12th Annual Recovery in the Park, both held on September 18th at Rotary Park in Bullhead City! The combined all-day event gave us a chance to meet with other service providers in our community and help increase the awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use disorders while also celebrating those who have overcome them and those who continue the fight. This is a very special event to us since each year, we are given the opportunity to see many past clients who have reclaimed their lives while within our care. National Recovery Month reinforces the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, is effective, and that people can and do recover. We are proud to be a part of this growing event and look forward to participating for many years to come!
