NAMI’s In Our Own Voice

Tuesday, February 13, 2018, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm EST
Bethesda Arrow Springs
100 Arrow Springs Blvd.
LebanonOH 45036

Map and Directions

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

Anyone familiar with mental illness knows that recovery is not a singular event, but a multi-dimensional, multi-linear journey characterized more by the mindset of the one taking the journey than by his or her condition at any given moment along the way.

Understanding recovery as having several dimensions makes its uneven course easier to accept. Much as we don’t blame the cancer patient for dying of invasive tumors, we can’t condemn anyone whose symptoms from time to time overtake his or her best efforts to manage illness.

No CPEs are available for this presentation.
