What is In Our Own Voice?
In Our Own Voice (IOOV) is a unique public education program in which two trained consumer speakers share compelling personal stories about living with mental illness and achieving recovery.
In Our Own Voice is dedicated to the support, education, and growth of consumers as presenters. Who better to talk about coping with a mental illness than those in recovery?
