IN  OUR  OWN  VOICE

 

In Our Own Voice (IOOV) is a 90 minute interactive public recovery education program presented by trained individuals (with a mental illness) to audiences, professionals, and other individuals with a mental illness about the reality of living with mental illness and the HIGH potential for recovery. This program also helps to diminish the stigma surrounding those with mental illness.

Two trained In Our Own Voice speakers share compelling and personal testamonies of living with and overcoming the challenges posed by mental illness. Audience participation and discussion are encouraged. A brief video with a variety of stories accompanies the presentation.

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

To schedule an In Our Own Voice presentation contact Janine Toman at 217-891-5570 or email namispringfieldil@hotmail.com.
