In Our Own Voice
A 60-90 minute presentation which unmasks mental illness, using personal stories to illuminate what it is like to live with a mental illness and maintain recovery. In Our Own Voice presenters change attitudes, misconceptions, and stereotypes regarding mental illness by sharing their experience and participating in an open Q&A at the end of the session.
Educating the Next Generation
Brings the truth about mental health, mental illness, and local resources to middle and high school students using trained interns to teach a 45 minute, interactive class. Students complete pre and post tests to measure change in their understanding of stigma, bias, and stereotypes associated with mental illness.
