In Our Own Voice

In Our Own Voice is a recovery education program in which people living with mental illness are trained to speak directly to community audiences about their experiences with brain disorders, treatment and recovery. Two people from Clackamas County who are living with mental illness are so extraordinary in their presentation that they are included in the national NAMI’s video used in this program. The educational and healing power of In Our Own Voice enriches the audience’s understanding of how people with serious mental disorders cope with the reality of their illnesses. Recovery and reclaiming productive lives is a powerful message for anyone whose life has been touched by mental illness.

Parents and Teachers as Allies

A 2-hour in-service program to help school professionals and families in 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.
