The Dayton VA Medical Center in conjunction with The Castle is looking to form a recovery support group for Veterans living with mental illness. This group will focus on learning from each other's experiences, share coping strategies, and offer each other encouragement and understanding.
This Veterans Recovery Support Group will be led by a Peer Support Specialist who understands the challenges faced by Veterans who live with mental illness and the journey in recovery. The aim of the group is to offer hope, embolden personal responsibility, support self-advocacy, afford support and education to each Veteran on the many pathways toward recovery.

Check out our support groups, sponsored by NAMI. We have KidShop for kids in grades 1-12 who have a sibling or parent with a mental health diagnosis, and Progression,an educational for teens 13-18 who have a mental health diagnosis. Both are FREE!
Hope4Us is a new Christian faith-based peer-to-peer support group for anyone in the community who wants to improve their mental health and work towards wellness and recovery. This includes people who live with mental illness and those who are supporting a family member living with mental illness.
It's time for mental awareness week October 4-10! We highlight the week with the National Day of Prayer. This year's 5th Annual event will be held October 6, 2015 at 6pm at Christ the King Lutheran Church.
