NAMI’s In Our Own Voice
April 28 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm
You are invited to hear two trained individuals share their compelling personal stories about living with mental illness and achieving recovery.
Throughout the In Our Own Voice (IOOV) presentation, audience members are encouraged to offer feedback and ask questions. Audience participation is an important aspect of IOOV because the more audience members become involved, the closer they come to understanding what it is like to live with a mental illness and stay in recovery.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Southwest Ohio is a grassroots education, support and advocacy organization founded in 1979. Originally founded as NAMI Hamilton County, at the end of 2014 NAMI Hamilton County, NAMI Warren County and NAMI Clermont County merged to better serve the region.
The Southwest Ohio office provides educational programs, support groups, and an information and referral phone line, and work together with the national organization (NAMI) and their state affiliate (NAMI Ohio) to advocate for people living with mental illness and their families.
