National Recovery Month


For the past 31 years, National Recovery Month has occurred during the month of September. This month, we celebrate the strides made by people living in recovery, highlight the availability of resources for people with mental health and substance use disorders, and promote and support evidence-based recovery practices used to treat these disorders.

Inspire others to raise awareness and take part in sharing information, resources and support for the mental health of minority communities. Visit our MHTTC Training and Events Calendar and Products and Resources Catalog to access free training and resources with a focus on recovery and recovery oriented systems of care.

You can also visit your Regional Center or National Focus Area Center for region and population-specific resources:

In addition to MHTTC events and resources, please visit our sister TTC Networks:

  • The Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network's mission is to accelerate the adoption and implementation of evidence-based and promising addiction treatment and recovery-oriented practices and services; heighten the awareness, knowledge, and skills of the workforce that addresses the needs of people with substance use or other behavioral health disorders; and foster regional and national alliances among culturally diverse practitioners, researchers, policy makers, funders, and the recovery community.

  • The Prevention Technology Transfer Center (PTTC) Network's mission is to improve implementation and delivery of effective substance abuse prevention interventions, and provide training and technical assistance services to the substance abuse prevention field.

For every Thursday this month, SAMHSA's 2020 National Recovery Month Webinar Series will highlight evidence-based practices for those in recovery. To learn more and register, visit their home page.

The Northwest MHTTC is debuting their Recovery Oriented Practice Webinar Series with Patricia E. Deegan, PhD. In this webinar series, Patricia E.
