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.
