Day 2 of #12DaysofRecovery
SHE RECOVERS® Foundation
Accessible, Inclusive Online Support & Expanded Recovery-Focused Resources
It’s day 2 of the #12DaysofRecovery. Today is all about celebrating accessible and inclusive support.
When the pandemic started, we went online. Previously, we had only offered in-person support. But once the trauma and shock of the pandemic began we saw a critical need for folks to cultivate connection in other ways and we created a thriving online support community.
It’s one of the reasons we’re so proud of SHE RECOVERS and the movement we’ve co-created.
Our twice-daily online gatherings facilitated by volunteer professional SHE RECOVERS® Coaches are free and accessible to all women – and non-binary individuals who identify with women’s communities – in or seeking recovery. These gatherings are unique in that we don’t just discuss and support each other through recovery from substance use. We find healing from other life challenges as well such as grief, anxiety, cancer, divorce, pregnancy loss, and post-traumatic stress.
We also offer weekly yoga facilitated by SHE RECOVERS Trauma-Informed Yoga Teachers and SHE RECOVERS Dance as somatic experiences to incorporate into your recovery patchworks.
Your donations make these things possible. We are beyond grateful for those who support us now and in the future.
Over the last year we’ve also established some truly important partnerships to expand our recovery-focused resources.
In collaboration with Pathlight Mood and Anxiety Center, we are hosting three Skills Building Sessions for anxiety, depression, and grief plus one Master Class on overworking. The session on grief is coming up on December 2, 2021, register here. You can also watch the replays here. We know these topics are important to our community and to so many people. After all, we are all recovering from something.
Thanks to Alkermes we have been able to host #MentalHealthMonday – a weekly educational series that features today’s leaders in women’s wellness, mental health, and addiction recovery. Some of our most popular episodes have been about codependency, the trauma and addiction connection, nurses in recovery, and how to navigate binge eating disorders.
We fully support the idea of normalizing therapy and we believe therapy is another important tool in your recovery toolbox. We’ve even collaborated with BetterHelp for our community to have a 35% discount on their first month of therapy. They’ve also generously contributed $100,000 towards our mission.
