In Our Own Voice
In Our Own Voice (IOOV) is a unique recovery education presentation program, delivered by trained consumer presenters who share their personal stories. IOOV is also an opportunity for those who have struggled with mental illness to gain confidence by sharing their individual experiences of recovery and transformation.
Presentations can be given to any organization or group, including consumer groups, students, law enforcement officials, educators, providers, faith community members, politicians, professionals, inmates, and interested civic groups.
