NAMI In Our Own Voice (IOOV) unmasks mental illness, using speaker stories to illustrate the individual realities of living with mental illness. You gain a better understanding of what it is like to live with mental illness and stay in recovery. NAMI In Our Own Voice can change attitudes, preconceived notions and stereotypes regarding mental illness.
Who can present
Any adult in recovery with a mental health condition may apply to be trained as a program leader for IOOV. All potential program leaders are screened to determine whether the opportunity is a good fit for the individual and for the organization. Prospective program leaders attend an intensive training to become certified and must be members of NAMI.
