Wellness Recovery


The Solano BH Wellness and Recovery Unit offers supportive services to our community through education about mental health and co-occurring substance use challenges, and support for individuals and their family members through personal wellness, responsibility, empowerment, and hope.

The WRU supports and guides the implementation of wellness and recovery principles across the BH system of care as well as:

  • Supervision of Peer Support Specialists (PSS)- employees and volunteers
  • The Solano Peer Network- monthly meeting for all county peer specialists
  • Peer Support Groups
  • Family Support Groups
  • Clinic or service program peer-led groups (like the Journaling group, WRAP groups)
  • Recovery Trainings- PSS, WRAP, others
  • Support in person or by phone to families and peers


Solano County BH is celebrating May is Mental Health Month 2020 with a new Web Series. Due to Covid-19, we thought it would be appropriate for our theme of “SURVIVING TO THRIVING” be the focus of this annual awareness event! We are all trying to make the best of this time of uncertainty, which is why it is more important than ever to practice self-care.

Over the course of the month, we will provide four web series of Self-Care with different topics. The topics will include:

> Tim Dreby, LMFT will share his story of lived experience and positive self-talk (May 8th)
> Reducing Stress at home: this includes discussing the quality of our sleep, holding an attitude of gratitude, using laughter as a coping strategy, planning a routine… (May 15th)
> Physical Activity and Healthy Eating: discussion about Solano County Food banks and other health topics (May 22nd)
> Social Connection: peer groups, connection groups, addiction recovery support groups, WRAP groups (May 29th)
