About This Program
In Our Own Voice (IOOV) is an interactive presentation that aims to change assumptions and stereotypes about people living with mental health conditions.
Two trained presenters with lived experience of a mental health condition talk openly about their experiences. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions to learn more about living with mental health conditions and how to live well in spite of them.
The 60–90 minute presentation is offered free of charge and is appropriate for diverse audiences, including family members, friends, mental health professionals, students, people living with mental health conditions, and the general public. Hundreds of IOOV presentations have taken place in hospitals, schools, churches, community organizations, and more.
Joining NAMI Vermont as an In Our Own Voice presenter is now a paid opportunity.
