Celebrate National Recovery Month
Events happening all throughout September


September is National Recovery Month.  This observance celebrates the millions of Americans who are in recovery from mental and substance use disorders, reminding us that treatment is effective and that people can and do recover. It also serves to help reduce the stigma and misconceptions that cloud public understanding of mental and substance use disorders, potentially discouraging others from seeking help. 

Recovery Month in San Mateo County kicks off with a candlelight vigil on August 28 followed by a number of events throughout the month of September including an art show, comedy show, black lives matter event and more.
