Mental Health: Everyone Has It
New Request for Proposal to provide integrated behavioral and acute care services for persons with serious mental illness in all counties except Maricopa, was released July 7, 2014.
This is the 25th year of our National Recovery Month! Join us and your community in promoting the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance use disorders. This year's theme, "Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out," encourages people to openly speak up about mental and substance use disorders and the reality of recovery, and promotes ways individuals can use to recognize behavioral health issues and reach out for help.
Please help us share with your loved ones that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.
