DAVENPORT, IOWA (October 11, 2021) — NAMI In Our Own Voice presentations changes attitudes, assumptions, and ideas about people with mental-health conditions. This presentation provides 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.

Join us Tuesday, October 26, 6:30PM, at the Fairmount Library or virtually for a presentation that will provide:

  • An opportunity to hear open and honest perspectives on a highly-misunderstood topic
  • A chance to ask leaders questions, allowing for a deeper understanding of mental-health conditions and dispelling of stereotypes and misconceptions
  • The understanding that people with mental-health conditions have lives enriched by hopes, dreams, and goals
  • Information on how to learn more about mental health and get involved with the mental-health community.
