September

Students and Sleep

Did you know that good sleep can protect against infectious diseases? Studies show that 78% of high school students and 34% of children don’t get enough sleep on an average school night. On this second annual Student Sleep Health Week, as young people head back to school, make sure they’re practicing good sleep hygiene as well as getting regular physical activity during the day.

International Overdose Awareness Day

Talking about depression with those you care about is one of the most important steps in preventing suicide. This National Suicide Prevention Week (September 4-10), start that conversation with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s questions and tips.

Substance Use Recovery

Over 23 million Americans have struggled with substance use disorder. The journey to recovery isn’t easy, but life improves as people get more involved in their communities, become more financially secure, and participate in healthy behaviors like exercise. To celebrate National Recovery Month, join the annual PRO-ACT Recovery Walk Saturday morning, September 17 at Penn’s Landing and Recovery Day at the Phillies on Saturday, September 24.
