Putnam NAMI’s "In Our Own Voice" (IOOV)

Putnam NAMI’s "In Our Own Voice" (IOOV) trained speakers share personal testimonies of living with and overcoming the challenges posed by mental illness throughout the county. Audience participation and discussion are encouraged. By expanding people's knowledge of mental illness, we replace misunderstanding, fear, and judgment with insight, awareness, and acceptance. The program is a powerful tool for community education and dispelling stigma by putting a human face on this often misunderstood area of human suffering.

Looking for Presenters! 

If you are a consumer, facing the daily challenges of living with a mental illness, and are willing to share your personal story with the general public, we would lke to meet you.

Please call Putnam NAMI at 845-278-363-1478 and leave a message to set up an interview with Linda Weintraub. Or email the request to NAMIPutnam@gmail.com.

A modest stipend is provided. Must have your own transportation, be available weekdays and have at least six (6) months free of hospital treatment.
