Deadline for Recovery Month Poster Art and Poetry Contest is Friday!

About the Contest

In preparation for National Recovery Month, which occurs every year in September, King County Behavioral Health and Recovery Division (BHRD) has announced its Recovery Poster Art and Poetry Contest. This year’s theme is “Rising Above it All: Wellness, Resilience, and Recovery”.

The contest is open to adults, youth and family members who are currently participating in King County’s publicly funded behavioral healthcare system or have participated in King County’s publicly-funded mental health or substance use treatment system in the past. 

Winners of both the poster art and poetry contests will receive a prize. The winning art piece will be featured as King County Behavioral Health and Recovery Division’s 2020 Recovery Poster and the winning poem will be featured in King County publications.

How to Enter
