NAMI In Our Own Voice (IOOV) presentations change attitudes, assumptions and ideas about people with mental health conditions. These free, 60-minute presentation provides 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.
This presentation provides:
*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
What other people are saying:
"I love being able to share these stories with others. It makes me feel good to get our message out there."
"This was incredible and something that should be shared as much as possible. The presenters were wonderful and so brave! This will help me be much more understanding and compassionate to people with mental illness."
Prior to the IOOV Presentation, we will have a reception in the lobby of Elevate at 5:45pm with the presentation starting at 6:30pm.
