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.


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 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
