St. Cloud VA Health Care System
Recovery Night is May 1 at St. Cloud VA
April 12, 2018
Recovery Night is scheduled for May 1, 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 several Veterans sharing their stories of hope, success, resilience and recovery.
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.
