It would seem that everything gets a day of the week, including little things like donuts and coffee. So it would not be a shock to find out there are several periods of time throughout the year dedicated to awareness of mental health and substance abuse disorder.

Below, we have a list of the mental health and substance abuse awareness days, weeks, and months we could find. We’ve also linked to the corresponding organization that is hosting the day.

We encourage you to consider supporting it in whatever capacity your organization or church can. You can help by simply sharing it with your congregation on Sunday morning or with your client in session to posting it on social media and flyers outside your building.

We plan to promote this awareness every time from all of our platforms and social media accounts, so if you follow us, you will know of events coming up.

If you know of more that we are missing, let us know in the comments.
