This month's topic: 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. 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.  Recover and reclaiming a productive life is a powerful message for everyone whose lives have been touched by mental illness.  Two local speakers will present the program. This program can be brought to your worksite to increase awareness and to decrease stigma towards working with persons with mental illness.  There will be time for questions and answers.
