You Recovery, My Recovery: Celebrating Together

Behavioral Health System Baltimore, along with 200+ community members, volunteers, providers and performers gathered in Eager Park for our 7th annual National Recovery Month celebration. 

This year’s theme of “Your Recovery, My Recovery: Celebrating Together,” reminds us that everyone’s path to recovery is different.
Whether it’s learning to live after a traumatic loss, coping with mental illness, abstinence from substance use, reducing use of substances or any other positive change towards wellness, everyone’s recovery journey deserves recognition. 

Host, Kish the Lioness, kept the energy up while DJ FoQus kept the crowd moving and grooving.

Dr. L from Journey Into Wellness grounded attendees with yoga. 

30 local providers shared harm reduction, substance use and mental health resources to support Baltimore’s emotional health and wellness.

Stories of lived and living experience from yoga instructor Naomi Hurley (left), Bmore POWER founder and advocate William G. Miller, Jr. (center) and Penn-North team leader and manager Vernard Nelson (right) highlighted the many different paths that recovery takes. 

Amor brought her soulful voice and inspirational spirit to the stage with three original and emotional songs that highlighted the importance of telling your story.

Drum Dr. Dot used Drumetry to promote healing, love and cultural pride.

Bmore Than Dance lit up the stage with some classic Baltimore beats and moves.

Thank you to every provider, performer and community member who made BHSB’s 7th annual Recovery Month celebration a success.
