This is our local celebration of National Recovery Month. Our theme is “recovery is happening in Kalamazoo!” On this day, we will celebrate recovery in all its varieties and showcase many of the supports and community services available in Kalamazoo. Everyone is invited to this fun event that will also include: live music, food, prizes, games and inspirational stories about recovery. Come join us in helping reduce stigma against people with mental health and substance use concerns and increase the awareness of the supports our community offers. Recovery is happening in Kalamazoo.
In total, over 60 booths will be showcasing many of the people, supports and community services that exist in Kalamazoo! Thanks goes out to all of these local organizations for promoting and encouraging Wellness and Recovery in our area:
The fair is planned and coordinated by The Peer Collaborative, a committee of people in recovery (peers), who are advocates for empowering their peers to succeed in recovery from substance use and mental health concerns. Many local businesses supported this year's fair by donating gift cards and in-kind services and goods that we plan to raffle off during the fair. Our primary financial sponsors are, Southwest Michigan Behavioral Health and Kalamazoo Community Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
