Please join the Leon County Public Library for “In Our Own Voice,” a presentation to raise awareness for mental health conditions, presented by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
In Our Own Voice presentations 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. The goal of this presentation is to promote awareness of mental health conditions and recovery.
