NAMI In Our Own Voice is a presentation created by NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Health, www.nami.org). It promotes awareness of mental illness, and it is designed to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness AND give voice to the very real possibility of recovery. In Our Own Voice brings two presenters who speak from their own lived experiences of mental illness, along with accompanying segments on DVD. The presenters describe the reality of living with mental illness as they walk the audience through five chapters of recovery - Dark Days, Acceptance, Treatment, Coping Skills and Successes, Hopes & Dreams. With discussion and ample time for Q & A, In Our Own Voice changes attitudes and assumptions; and fosters recognition, understanding and recovery.

After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.
