Throughout the presentation, the audience is encouraged to offer feedback and ask questions. These opportunities for participants lead to a better understanding of what it is like to live with a mental illness and help break down the walls of stigma that surround mental illness. In fact, 85% of those who attend an In Our Own Voice presentation leave with a more positive attitude about mental illness and recovery.
“By telling my story I can help others: that’s huge. Before I was always the one being helped.”
Presentations are available to community, civic and government organizations, law enforcement, healthcare providers, faith communities, students, consumers, and families and friends.
