General Information
Description of ServiceThe goal of the FOCUS Photography Program is to provide veterans the opportunity to learn the basics of photography and use it as a form of self-expression.

Therapeutic Photography is the name for photo-based activities that are self-initiated and conducted by oneself (or as part of an organized group or project), but where no formal therapy is taking place and no therapist or counselor needs to be involved. According to the American Art Therapy Association, art can help combat veterans by allowing them different avenues to express feelings and experiences that are difficult to express verbally.

Art therapy has proven to be highly effective in treating the psychological disabilities many veterans face.
