In Our Own Voice (IOOV)

One of our IOOV speakers have been inducted into the NAMI Hall of Fame in July 2016





In Our Own Voice (IOOV) is a unique public education program developed by NAMI, in which two trained individuals living with mental illness share their compelling personal stories about achieving recovery.


If you are a group 
or an organization that is interested in having volunteers with NAMIws do a IOOV presentation please let us know. The program was started with a grant from Eli Lily and Company.

IOOV is an opportunity for those who have struggled with mental illness to gain confidence and to share their individual experiences of recovery and transformation.

Throughout the IOOV presentation, audience members are encouraged to offer feedback and ask questions. Audience participation is an important aspect of IOOV because the more audience members become involved, the closer they come to understanding what it is like to live with a mental illness and stay in recovery.

IOOV presentations are given to consumer groups, students, law enforcement officials, educators, providers, faith community members, politicians, professionals, inmates, and interested civic groups.

All presentations are offered free of charge.
