In Our Own Voice is a program offered by NAMI NJ in which trained volunteers discuss their lived experience of mental health recovery. Presenters talk about the onset of their mental health condition, their experience of coping with symptoms and seeking treatment. They also discuss what helped them achieve recovery and what continues to help them going forward. There will be time for questions and discussion. We hope you will join us for this story of hope and recovery. A brief business meeting will be held prior to the presentation. To register click here.
