NAMI In Our Own Voice presentations change attitudes, assumptions and stereotypes through the power of personal stories. This free, 90-minute, interactive presentation provides audiences a first-hand account what its like to live with a mental health diagnosis while offering hope and providing insight into the recovery now possible for people with mental illness.
NAMI IOOV presentations provide:
- A first-hand account of what it’s like to live with a mental illness. Presenters humanize this misunderstood topic by demonstrating that it’s possible—and common—to live well with mental illness.
- A chance to ask the presenters questions, which allows for a deeper understanding of mental health conditions and dispel stereotypes and misconceptions.
- The understanding that hope and recovery is possible for individuals who have a mental health diagnosis.
This presentation is appropriate for peer groups, community organizations, educational settings and mental health professionals. Download an In Our Own Voice flyer for more information.
