Southern Regional Delegates Host

"In Our Own Voices"

Presented by

National Alliance on Mental Illness



June 8th 

6:00 PM-7:00PM

In-person at the Hammonton Library

About the Workshop: The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) “In Our Own Voice” presentation works to change attitudes, assumptions and ideas about people with mental health conditions. This presentation will provide a personal perspective of mental health conditions, as leaders with lived experience talk openly about what it's like to have a mental health condition.

This in-person workshop will provide:  

  • An opportunity to hear open and honest perspectives on a highly misunderstood topic
  • A chance to ask leaders questions, allowing for a deeper understanding of mental health conditions and dispelling of stereotypes and misconceptions
  • The understanding that people with mental health conditions have lives enriched by hopes, dreams and goals
  • Information on how to learn more about mental health and get involved with the mental health community
  • Round table discussion with fellow school psychologists on applying key points of the presentation to current practice

Through education, support, advocacy and public awareness programs NAMI NJ fosters understanding about mental illness, confronts stigma often associated with mental disorders, advocate for public policies that benefit those affected by mental illness, and promotes research into the causes, treatment and recovery of mental health disorders.
