Visions of Recovery poster contest set
Vancouver, WA – Entries for the fifth annual “Visions of Recovery” poster contest will be accepted May 9-23, 2012. The event, hosted by Clark County’s Regional Support Network (RSN), is part of an ongoing effort to reduce stigma associated with mental health and substance use issues and reinforce the message that people can and do recover from mental illness and addiction.
Anyone who lives or works in Southwest Washington is eligible to compete in the contest and share their vision of what mental health and/or substance use recovery means to them.
A $50 gift card will be awarded to each of the top five entries.
Winning entries will be placed at select locations throughout the year beginning in May as part of national Mental Health Month. All participants will receive a letter of recognition and certificate of appreciation for submitting their work.
The community is invited to view and vote for favorite entries on Tuesday, May 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Center for Community Health, 1601 E. Fourth Plain Blvd., Vancouver. Artists will write brief descriptions of respective themes to be included with their submissions.
Contest rules and entry forms may be found at http://www.clark.wa.gov/mental-health/recovery/ or by calling (360) 397-2130.
The mission of the RSN is to promote mental health and ensure that residents of the Clark County region who experience a mental illness during their lifetime receive treatment and services so that they can recover, achieve their personal goals and live, work and participate in their community.
