Recovery Outreach is available to vets
Mental health recovery is possible, and the St. Cloud VA is starting an informal group meeting to help Veterans begin their own recovery journey.
Starting January 3, the Recovery Outreach Group meeting is scheduled on the first Wednesday of each month, from 5 to 6 p.m., at the Good Earth Co-Op, located at 2010 Veterans Drive, in St. Cloud.
The meeting is open to Veterans and family members with an interest in VA mental health recovery and programs and those who want to support a Veteran in their recovery.
For Veterans, the meeting provides an opportunity to hear stories of hope and inspiration from fellow Veterans about their mental health recovery.
Recovery is about staying in control of one’s 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.
VA staff will be present to answer questions and provide information about the comprehensive mental health treatment programs at the St. Cloud VA.
VA enrollment is not required to attend the meeting, and pre-registration is not required.
Contact Leigh Van De Walker, MSW, LICSW at (320) 252-1670 extension 6503 or via email at: email@example.com for more information on the meeting.
