NAMI In Our Own Voice presentations change attitudes, assumptions and stereotypes by describing the reality of living with mental illness. People with mental health conditions share their powerful personal stories in this presentation. What You’ll Gain: NAMI In Our Own Voice adds a critical perspective to the popular understanding of what people with mental illness are like. Going to this presentation will provide you:

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 every person with a mental illness can hope for a bright future.

What People are Saying “Amazing presentation with amazing presenters! You 100% erased any stigma I used to associate with mental illness.” “Several of the mental health staff stated that they saw recovery as a real option—for the first time ever.”

Again, we there are NOT Continuing Education Credits for Professionals for this event. The event is FREE and open to the public and can be attended LIVE via the web. We hope to record the training for legacy viewing online.
