The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Vermont (NAMI VT) “In Our Own Voice” program will be offered free of charge to all community members and interested participants at the Arlington Community House (3854 Main Street). Audience members can expect to learn about living with a mental health condition, gain a new perspective of those with a mental health condition, and learn about what NAMI Vermont offers to your community.
NAMI “In Our Own Voice” is a 60-90 minute public education presentation that raises the awareness of mental illness and recovery. It includes a short video, personal testimony, and a Q&A that allows for honest and open dialogue. Presenters engage audiences with their brave and gripping personal journeys as they touch on the various phases of recovery including “What Happened, What Helps,” and “What’s Next.”
If you or an organization you know would be interested in hosting an “In Our Own Voice” presentation, feel free to contact NAMI Vermont for more information at (802) 876-7949 or visit www.namivt.org. Information about upcoming presentations will be posted on our website and shared with local media outlets.
