In Our Own Voice
“In Our Own Voice” is a presentation that enriches an audiences’ understanding of how over 58 million Americans who have a mental illness cope, while also reclaiming rich and meaningful lives. An In Our Own Voice speaker will share a personal testimony of living with and overcoming the challenges posed by mental illness and help the audiences expand their understanding of what it’s like to experience a psychiatric illness.
In Our Own Voice presentations are given to schools, faith communities, hospitals, out-patient and in-patient facilities, government agencies, private corporations and other venues. Training is required. The speaker must be comfortable speaking in front of audiences that range from 5 – 100 people and answering questions posed by the audience. The dates, times, and locations of the presentations vary from month to month. A small stipend is provided for each speaking engagement.
