Conquering Recovery: Recovery is Lonely

Recovery is a lifelong process that can pose new challenges at different stages. Whether recovering from anxiety, depression, an eating disorder, PTSD, substance use, or other mental health conditions, roadblocks are bound to come up. A challenge that many face throughout recovery is feeling alone. This can present in many ways, such as feeling like you don't fit in, being triggered in social settings, or navigating the difficulties of recovery with pressures in certain situations.

During 2022 Recovery Month in September, join MHA and partners for this free 60-minute webinar where we will:

  • Discuss how to navigate the social challenges of recovery
  • Identify how to find healthy social support
  • Identify how to find healthy social support
  • Explore how individuals can provide support and friendship to those in recovery

This webinar will be recorded and available to the public within one week. We do not offer CEUs, but certificates of attendance will be available upon request after the event.
