International Recreational Therapy Month is February!

Theme: My Ability is Stronger than my Disability

Hashtag for Social Media: #WeAreRecTherapy

It's our month to shine!  February is International Recreational Therapy Month. This year we will be sharing our celebration internationally. We are very proud to share that ATRA will be collaborating with the Canadian Therapeutic Recreation Association (CTRA) as we share our stories and monthly activities through social media, connecting us on a global platform.

We encourage you use our hashtag (#WeAreRecTherapy) personally to tell us about the work you do. Tell your clients, colleagues, supervisors, and other fans of RT to give us a shout out on social media as well during this month. Share your stories and pictures, create a video and tell everyone who we are. Don’t forget to use our hashtag! (#WeAreRecTherapy)

Stay tuned for a calendar of activities/events for the entire month with ideas and tips as we celebrate and promote our profession.


Join us in our excitement to celebrate Recreational Therapy Month!
