In Our Own Voice is the consumer speaker's bureau offered to the public. This NAMI program introduces groups to people who have a diagnosis to those wanting to learn about their lives. Speakers within the program are trained to tell their own stories. It’s through disclosure and personal contact that barriers break down and stigma begins to erode.
