NAMI In Our Own Voice is a free presentation by persons living with a mental health condition.
This insightful presentation adds a critical perspective to the popular understanding of what people with mental illness are like. Going to this presentation will provide you:
- A first-hand account of what it’s like to live with a mental illness. Presenters humanize this misunderstood topic by demonstrating that it’s possible—and common—to live well with mental illness.
- A chance to ask the presenters questions, which allows for a deeper understanding of mental health conditions and dispel stereotypes and misconceptions.
- The understanding that every person with a mental illness can hope for a bright future.
We hope to see you there!
You’re invited to share in some holiday cheer!
Join NAMI Greenville staff and friends for our Christmas Dinner.

Join us on Monday, Dec. 11 from 7:30 to 8:30 PM at Westminster Presbyterian Church (2310 Augusta St., Greenville, SC 29605).
We’ll see you there!
