Peer Services Program Supervisor Marie Holliday’s new mantra is, “Self-care is giving the world the best of you- NOT what’s left of you!  Especially amid increased COVID-19 cases and the cancellation of the 2021 Alabama Institute for Recovery Conference, JBS Adult Peer Services is launching a very special “ Self-Care September”.  Throughout the month of September, we will be providing free self-care items to JBS consumers in the residential homes as well as the community.  These items consist of books, insulated lunch bags, washable masks, women’s hair accessories, etc.  Peer Services plans to create a self-care craft activity using white cloth masks, along with the self-care booklets. Individuals will have the opportunity to make a personal self-care mini-book using paper bags. If you are interested in items for your location, feel free to contact Peer Services Team Leader Charisse Parker at
