Substance use, mental illness and eating concerns are not a choice and should be treated like any other disease or illness, with compassion and support. You don't need to have personal experience with any of these topics to be a recovery ally, but it does require some extra education, empathy and continued support. If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about how to become a recovery ally, visit HPW's DeHUB page to find more information. Recovery ally workshops are open to all DePaul community members.
Join us tonight for Wellness Wednesday as we will be highlighting how you can be a recovery ally. Wellness Wednesday is featured at 6 p.m. on Facebook @healthydepaul.
Additionally, join us for our annual "SEX IN THE DARK" event tonight. Join us for a Q&A panel where “sexperts" answer your anonymous questions about sexual health and relationships. We have an incredible line up of experts this year, including Emily Lloyd from the One Love Foundation, Searah Deysach the owner of Early to Bed, Rachel Mintz from Resilience, Carina Vargas-Nunez and Fredy Roberts from Howard Brown, and Salam Salaheen from Lurie's Children's. Our experts are specialists in their field and are excited to answer your questions around sex, pleasure, safe sex, relationships, communication, trauma informed sex and relationships.
