In Our Own Voice: A Community Mental Health Presentation

In Our Own Voice is a unique public education program developed by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), in which two trained speakers share compelling personal stories about living with a mental illness and achieving recovery. In Our Own Voice helps to foster understanding about mental illness in our community while providing an opportunity for individuals and families to share experiences, support and hope for recovery.

This free event will take place on Tuesday, March 19 from 7 – 9 p.m. at The Lyceum, 201 S. Washington St., Alexandria, VA 22314.

This event is co-sponsored by Friends of the Alexandria Mental Health Center, the Alexandria Community Services Board, the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria, NAMI Northern Virginia and the Department of Community and Human Services.
