April Is National Counseling Awareness Month


National Counseling Awareness Month begins on April 1st and honors the hard-working counselors and therapists who support men and women struggling with addiction or mental health disorders. This year, National Counseling Month helps raise awareness and promotes self-care, advocacy, and inclusion. Counselors are very beneficial in guiding patients through group and individual therapy to give them the coping skills and confidence necessary to maintain their recovery from addiction. They are an integral part of reaching their recovery goals and improving their health.

What Is National Counseling Awareness Month?

The American Counseling Association (ACA) has dedicated April as National Counseling Awareness Month. This month highlights the work that counselors and therapists do every day to help their patients improve their lives in all industries. The mental health industry is an enriching and challenging career path. You can show your support and appreciation for their efforts in many ways.

You can help spread awareness by posting your struggles and triumphs with addiction on social media with #BurnBrightNotOut. Teal is the official color of National Counseling Awareness Month, and you can share your support by wearing teal during April. Learn more about addiction and mental health by researching and joining community programs that support patients and the counselors and therapists that help them.

At Vertava Health Texas, we honor our staff during National Counseling Month for their hard work and dedication to improving the health and well-being of our patients. If you have a friend or family member who is a counselor, treat them to a night out or a spa day for a much-needed break.
