Recovery Night: A peer-led effort to share success and inspire hope in others

The Veterans’ Mental Health Advocacy Council is hosting Recovery Night on September 29, from 6 to 8 p.m., at Bldg. 96, St. Cloud VA Medical Center, located at 4801 Veterans Drive, in St. Cloud. Developed and presented by Veterans, Recovery Night features several Veterans who will share their stories of recovery.

For Veterans, the concept of recovery is about staying in control of their life despite experiencing a mental health condition, and emphasizes that people with mental illness can gain or regain the capacity to live a meaningful and self-determined life, and thrive in their communities.

Veterans, family members, community members and organizations with an interest in or who are curious about VA mental health recovery and programs are invited to attend.

In support of rehabilitation and recovery of every Veteran with a mental illness, VA has identified recovery as a guiding principle for its entire mental health service delivery system. Recovery is a journey that involves developing hope, self-direction, empowerment, respect and peer support.

The Veterans’ Mental Health Advocacy Council is a self-governing group of Veteran mental health consumers and their family members, and includes representatives from community mental health agencies. The purposes of the council are to provide input regarding local mental health structures and operations and to share information with Veterans, family members, and community representatives about local VA mental health programs and initiatives.
