Find Help, Find Hope!

In Our Own Voice

NAMI In Our Own Voice presentations change attitudes, assumptions and stereotypes about people with mental health conditions. These 40-, 60- or 90-minute presentations provide a personal perspective of mental illness, as presenters with lived experience talk openly about what it’s like to live with a mental health condition.

Our trained presenters humanize the misunderstood, highly stigmatized topic of mental illness by showing that it’s possible—and common—to live well with a mental health condition. This presentation also provides:

  • A chance to ask presenters questions, allowing for a deeper understanding of mental health conditions and dispelling of stereotypes and misconceptions.
  • The understanding that every person with a mental health condition can hope for a brighter future.
  • Information on how to learn more about mental health and get involved with the mental health community.
