Background:The purpose of the fashion show is to promote mental health recovery and success in the community for local Veterans. Mental Health Recovery differs from other types of recovery (i.e., physical recovery, trauma recovery, etc.) Definitions of Mental Health Recovery vary, but all involve some component of acceptance of the illness, having a sense of hope about the future, and finding a renewed sense of self. Every VA across the country has a Local Recovery Coordinator who assists Veterans and their families on recovery efforts.
