National Rally for Recovery Bid
This bid application is for RCOs to host the National Rally for Recovery Hub Event to be held in September (or October) 2018. It will serve as the culmination of the many activities that take place during Recovery Month in September around the nation and worldwide.
Every September, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) promotes Recovery Month to increase awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use issues and celebrate communities. The Faces & Voices of Recovery Program & Outreach Committee will select the national hub site.
At the events, people in recovery, their families, friends, and allies are encouraged to participate in civic life and celebrate their growing visibility. Each event reflects the interests of organizers, frequently combining family activities like face painting, music and great food with advocacy activities like walks around the State Capitol and opportunities to meet and speak with elected officials.
Please fill out the information below as thoroughly as possible and include any past press, images or links to previous rallies or events your RCO has held.
If selected, your RCO Recovery Month Rally will be the Nationally Recognized Recovery Month Hub. This includes significant national exposure, SAMHSA presence with filming opportunities for your location, social media marketing with Faces & Voices of Recovery and listed on the recoveryday.org website.
Deadline for submissions is February 9th. Host location will be selected and contacted by the 12th and announced on Feb 13th All ARCO Member call
