Take it from Evan

June 13, 2019

Evan Silverman was diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age. One conclusion he has come to throughout his recovery journey is that there is no blueprint for living with mental illness.

Understanding your options for mental health and substance use treatment can make that process easier. That’s why we partnered with the Colorado Department of Human Services, Office of Behavioral Health to create the Mental Wellness and Addiction Recovery Guide, a free resource for Coloradans considering recovery.

If you’ve sought treatment for yourself or a loved one, you know the challenges that come with making the decision to start treatment, navigating your insurance coverage, or finding the treatment option that fits. The guide addresses each of these factors and more.

Evan’s advice—cultivate love, set manageable goals for yourself, try to stay strong in the tough times, and find someone you trust as a sponsor or mentor. If you are thinking about taking the first step to recovery, visit cowellnessrecovery.org today. For more resources, visit our Need Help page.
