Event description

Description

Service as a caregiver to an active or retired member of our armed forces is unlike the experience of any other caregiver. We are dedicating a day to explore the rewards and challenges unique to those who care for men and women who have served our country. They will leave with insight on special services available to support them, to include self-care practices, as well as new connections to resources and individuals that can guide them on the caregiving journey.

Through partnerships and collaborations, the Veterans Mental Health Advisory Council at the Washington, DC VA Medical Center has the unique and challenging task of building, maintaining, promoting, and facilitating recovery-oriented practice. We serve as Recovery Champions and consultants to other Veterans, their families, and all levels of the mental health care system. The purpose of the Council shall be to provide a forum for members to express their views and opinions, without fear of reprisal, regarding VA mental health services, and to assure that all Veterans have access to the highest quality of these services available to them, both at the Department of Veterans Affairs and within the community, enabling them to achieve their greatest degree of independence.
