St. Cloud VA Health Care System
Recovery Night at St. Cloud VA
April 23, 2019
Recovery Night is scheduled for May 23, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at Bldg. 8 (Auditorium), St. Cloud VA Medical Center, located at 4801 Veterans Drive, in St. Cloud.
Recovery Night features a resource fair as well as an inspiring Veteran sharing his story of healing and hope.
Veterans, family members, VA staff and community members and organizations with an interest in VA mental health recovery and programs or who want to support someone in their recovery are invited to attend.
For Veterans, recovery is about staying in control of their life despite experiencing a mental health problem, 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.
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.
