Anti-Stigma

“IN OUR OWN VOICE” TRAINS NEW PRESENTERS

In July, NAMI-NM will be training new presenters for “In Our Own Voice—Living with Mental Illness.”  There will be a limited amount of slots available at the training, so we encourage you to let us know as quickly as possible if you are wanting to train to be a part of this exciting program.

“In Our Own Voice-Living with Mental Illness” has celebrated its first year in Albuquerque acting as a vehicle of mental health awareness to the general public, providers, consumers, schools, churches, and law enforcement officers.  This interactive program offers a video and two consumer presenters in recovery who share their life experiences, breaking them up into “Dark Days, Acceptance, Treatment, Coping Skills, and Successes Hopes and Dreams.”

If you have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, chronic depression, OCD, panic disorder, borderline personality disorder, or dual diagnosis, and are currently in recovery, this program could be for you.  We are looking for individuals to act as “stigma-busters” and educators by sharing their experiences with the general public.  If you are interested in further information regarding this program, please contact Mary Tabor at 856-017.
