MHA Participated in Erie County’s 16th Annual Recovery Celebration

rita wheelerThe Mental Health Association of NW PA participated in Erie County’s 16th Annual Recovery Celebration. The theme of this year’s celebration was “Join the Voices of Recovery: Together we are Stronger”. The entire community came together to celebrate recovery and those who are at all stages of recovery. Erie City Mayor Joe Schember and Gary Lee from the County Executive’s Office gave Proclamations declaring September 2019 as National Recovery Month in Erie. Over 200 people attended the event and participated in giveaways, a light lunch, and learning about Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol resources throughout our community.

The event also included speakers who spoke about their personal journey through recovery as well as the presentation of the annual Susan P. Esper Awards. MHA’s own Hillary Palzcer received a Susan P. Esper Award for her dedication to her ongoing recovery and service to our community. Plus the MHA’s Former Program/Volunteer Coordinator, Rita Wheeler, was awarded the Community Award for her countless years of selfless dedication to past Recovery Events.
