Mental Health America of Abilene would like to reach out to those who struggle with their mental wellness and help them on their journey towards wellness. Our mission is to provide leadership and support for hope, recovery and mental wellness for all.
If you are willing to participate in your recovery, it is possible for anyone whether it’s for mental health or substance abuse to become healthier, gain more stability and live better lives. Developing a recovery plan can be essential to one’s journey of becoming stable again.
According to Mentalhealth.gov, Recovery Plans:
- Enable you to identify goals for achieving wellness
- Specify what you can do to reach those goals
- Include daily activities as well as longer term goals
- Track any changes in your mental health problem
- Identify triggers or other stressful events that can make you feel worse, and help you learn how to manage them
You can learn more about your own recovery and action plan using the online tools section.
Please take the opportunity to stay connected with us.
