With an accurate diagnosis, effective medication, attention to health and wellness, and peer and family support, most people living with mental illness can obtain relief from their symptoms and achieve satisfying and meaningful lives. The In Our Own Voice presentation demonstrates how individuals with severe mental illness experience recovery. Each program presenter has been through training to translate the story of his or her own struggles and successes. The In Our Own Voice presentation covers the following components of recovery: Dark Days, Acceptance, Treatment, Coping Strategies, Successes, Hopes and Dreams. Come and listen to how two individuals have faced the recovery process. It is an eye-opening, stigma-reducing, straight-from-the heart offering of messages of hope and recovery to consumers and family members affected by serious mental illnesses. In addition, it provides paid work opportunities for its presenters, encouraging self-confidence and self-esteem.

The IOOV presentation will begin at approximately 7:15 PM. The last 15 minutes of the meeting will feature 2-3 minute speeches by candidates running for election to the five seats on the Tri City Medical Center Board of Directors.

The NAMI Connection support group for consumers will meet from 5:30 to 6:30 PM in the parish library.  Our family support group will meet in the church library from 8:30—10 PM.
