National Rehabilitation Awareness Week.


The third full week in September every year is recognizes as National Rehabilitation Awareness WeekThis year, National Rehabilitation Awareness Week is September 20-26, 2021.


At this time we at Mossman Associates and BioSound Technologies would like to acknowledge the benefits that can arise from rehabilitation programs. Also, we would like to recognize the dedicated individuals who provide rehabilitation services to people in need. We would especially like to mention those people in the drug addiction rehabilitation field and the different techniques now being used in the recovery process, which are instrumental in turning the tide of this national disaster.

Every person deserves to live his/her life to the fullest and rehabilitation can benefit a person physically, mentally, and spiritually, regardless of age.  This year, the focus is on raising awareness of the

 #powerofmedicalrehab. The intent is to educate people about the benefits and impact of rehabilitation, to increase opportunities for Americans with disabilities and to disseminate useful resources.

September Is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month


People have become increasingly comfortable talking about their mental health, particularly this past year. The topic of suicide – when it comes up – is still scary for many people to think about and each year more than 48,000 Americans die by suicide. 

Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month — a time to raise awareness on this subject, which all too often still comes with a stigma.

We at BioSound Technologies have partnered with Survive First, (, to assist those people who are in need of help.

May-Mental Health Month 2021

As we know millions of Americans live with mental illness. We continue each year to fight the stigma associated with the disease, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies to support these people and their families.  May is the month that has been designated to be the time for the national movement to raise awareness about mental health each year.

In 2021, the theme continues to be “Tools 2 Thrive”.  The goal is providing practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health and increase their resiliency regardless of their personal situation. We at Mossman Associates take mental health seriously. We will continue to provide professionals with tools to help them better equipped their patients to handle stress, be more productive, and realize their full potential.
