Every year, International Women’s Day celebrates women’s achievements around the world. Sadly, in many areas of life and locations, women don’t have equal footing with men. Therefore, this day also helps to promote recognition of this disparity and work to change it. To learn more about this unique day, please contact The Willows at Red Oak today by calling 855.773.0614.
When Is International Women’s Day?
Each year, International Women’s Day occurs on March 8, regardless of the day of the week. People worldwide are encouraged to mark their calendars for this year and subsequent ones to not forget this holiday. Since many municipalities also commemorate the day, look for events in your area around that time that celebrate women.
What Can You Do to Celebrate International Women’s Day?
Anyone anywhere can celebrate this day in support of women. In fact, the more people who work to encourage women and recognize their achievements will bring greater awareness to the need for equality.
Closer to home, individuals can do many things to celebrate International Women’s Day. First, promote the event on social media and talk about it with friends and family. Doing so spreads the word about this important day naturally.
Second, donate to charities that focus on women and women’s rights. Examples include Girl Scouts, Equality Now, and Dress for Success. For those who have local charities, donating to them will help even more because these smaller groups often don’t have money coming from around the world as larger fundraising organizations do.
Third, promote women’s mental health and wellness. If local charities that serve these areas need funds or volunteers, consider contributing. However, individuals can also encourage women to get women’s wellness exams and mental health checkups from their doctors. You can also help those that need the care to get it.
International Women’s Day and Women’s Mental Health
For women to truly become equal with men, they need equal care in all life areas, including mental and physical wellness. However, too often, many facilities, especially mental healthcare sites, cater more to men’s needs. However, women also need to have their mental health issues addressed.
For example, in substance use treatment facilities, often the programs don’t include ways to address trauma or anxiety, both common issues in women. Therefore, for women who need this type of help, seeking it from a female-only addiction recovery facility may help provide the care they need.
How We Celebrate International Women’s Day Every Day
We believe in and practice the principles of International Women’s Day every day through our mission of offering individualized, trauma-focused addiction recovery care for women at our facility. Our core values are as follows:
First, our care is compassionate by ensuring our entire team remains sensitive to our clients’ needs.
Secondly, we promote excellence by having a staff of master-level clinicians to offer the best care possible.
Third, we remain humble by keeping our facility small to no more than 20 clients at a time. Therefore, each woman gets the attention she needs to heal at her own pace.
Fourth, we believe in integrity by never compromising on the quality of care.
Lastly, we offer individualized care and service for each client with a range of numerous addiction and mental health therapy options available.
By adhering to these core values, we can give women the care they need to recover from substance use disorders to have full, enjoyable lives.
