In Our Own Voice Presentation

Sep 23

In recognition of Mental Illness Awareness Week (the first full week of October), we will be co-hosting (along with Volunteers for Mental Health in Montgomery County) the FREE National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) In Our Own Voice presentation.

Date: Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Time: 6:30 pm

Place: St. John’s Episcopal Church, 212 S. Green Street, Crawfordsville, IN

Two presenters from NAMI-West Central Indiana, our NAMI affiliate in Lafayette, Indiana, will be conducting the presentation.

NAMI’s In Our Own Voice is a free presentation delivered by people living with mental illness. Two trained In Our Own Voice speakers will share their compelling and personal testimonies of living with and overcoming the challenges posed by mental illness. Audience participation and discussion are encouraged, and a brief video with a variety of stories accompanies the presentation.

Each presentation:

  • Lasts from 60 to 90 minutes
  • Is offered free of charge
  • Is delivered to a variety of audiences
  • Follows a structured format covering issues frequently faced by those dealing with mental illness

By broadening people’s knowledge of mental illness, we replace misunderstanding, fear, and judgment with insight, awareness, and acceptance.

Please join us. Snacks and beverages will be served.
