NAMI In Our Own Voice (IOOV) unmasks mental illness, using speaker stories to illustrate the individual realities of living with mental illness. You gain a better understanding of what it is like to live with mental illness and stay in recovery. NAMI In Our Own Voice can change attitudes, preconceived notions and stereotypes regarding mental illness. Click here for more information.

Parents & Teachers as Allies

In-service mental health education program for school professionals.  This two-hour in-service program focuses on helping school professionals and families within the school community better understand the early warning signs of mental illnesses in children and adolescents and how best to intervene so that youth with mental health treatment needs are linked with services.  It also covers the lived experience of mental illnesses and how schools can best communicate with families about mental health related concerns.

Contact the NAMIGlendale Affiliate for details on upcoming presentations or to request a presentation be delivered at your school or district.
