In Our Own Voice
Delivered by someone in recovery, this unique presentation shines a light on the journey of someone's life experience with mental illness. NAMI In Our Own Voice presentations change attitudes, assumptions, and ideas about people with mental health conditions. These free, 40-, 60- or 90-minute presentations provide a personal perspective of mental health conditions, as leaders with lived experience talk openly about what it's like to have a mental health condition.

An opportunity to hear open and honest perspectives on a highly misunderstood topic
A chance to ask leaders questions, allowing for a deeper understanding of mental health conditions and dispelling of stereotypes and misconceptions
The understanding that people with mental health conditions have lives enriched by hopes, dreams and goals
Information on how to learn more about mental health and get involved with the mental health community
