In Our Own Voice (IOOV)

In Our Own Voice is a unique recovery education presentation that offers hope and provides insight into the recovery now possible for people with mental illness. Two trained consumer presenters lead the discussion. The program educates everyone about the ongoing recovery issues we face and the fulfilling lives that we can achieve. IOOV is often a transformative experience for presenters, who are empowered by giving voice to their struggles and successes.  Presenters cover issues they frequently face while living with mental illness.


The power of IOOV is based on the sharing of our journeys- the stories about living with mental illness. IOOV gives hope, educates, open minds, and changes attitudes. IOOV helps eradicate the stigma surrounding mental illness.
