What is NAMI In Our Own Voice?

NAMI In Our Own Voice is a unique public education program in which presentations consist of two trained speakers sharing their compelling personal stories of living with mental health challenges and achieving recovery. Audiences range from individuals living with mental health challenges, students of all ages, law enforcement officials and faith community members to veterans and service providers.

While audiences benefit from the inspirational stories of the speakers, presenters increase their confidence and develop leadership skills through helping to inspire and motivate others.

NAMI Carroll County, the local organization of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will offer its next NAMI In Our Own Voice presentation on Thursday May 26, 2022. It will be held at 7 pm at Wesley Freedom UMC 961 Johnsville Road Sykesville MD 21784 Room 200.

Audience Perspectives

“I learned more about mental health conditions from these generous people than any book I have read.”

“[In Our Own Voice] is helpful for people to understand how REAL and how DISABLING the symptoms are. So many people see [individuals with mental illness] as manipulative or lazy.”
