In Our Own Voice (IOOV) is a unique public education program developed by NAMI, in which two trained speakers share compelling personal stories about living with mental illness and achieving recovery.
The program was started with a grant from Eli Lily and Company.
Throughout the IOOV presentation, audience members are encouraged to offer feedback and ask questions.
Audience participation is an important aspect of IOOV because the more audience members become involved, the closer they come to understanding what it is like to live with a mental illness and stay in recovery.
IOOV presentations are given to students, law enforcement officials, educators, providers, faith community members, politicians, professionals, inmates, and interested civic groups.
All presentations are offered free of charge.
For more information, to schedule or request an IOOV presentation for your group, organization or school please call the NAMI Hamilton County office at (513) 351-3500 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
