NAMI In Our Own Voice

A unique public education program developed by NAMI.

NAMI Columbus

NAMI Columbus is the largest affiliate in Georgia at this time. We want families to know that we are here for them and that they are not alone. We need you to help us spread the word about NAMI Columbus to other families who are struggling with the effects of mental illness.

WHAT IS IOOV?

In Our Own Voice (IOOV) is a unique public education program developed by NAMI, in which two trained consumer speakers share compelling personal stories about living with mental illness and achieving recovery.

IOOV is an opportunity for those who have struggled with mental illness to gain confidence and to share their individual experiences of recovery and transformation.

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 consumer groups, students, law enforcement officials, educators, providers, faith community members, politicians, professionals, inmates, and interested civic groups.

All presentations are offered free of charge.

If you would like to have speakers come to your location, please contact info4@namicolsinc.org or call our office at 706.320.3755 to arrange a time. Thank you!
