NAMI Southern Maryland offers free presentations to groups throughout the Tri-County Region.  We can help your PTA, church group, civic organization, or club learn more about mental health and the impact of mental illness on our families and our community.


  • In Our Own Voice (IOOV) is a unique public education program developed by NAMI, in which two trained speakers (with mental illness) share compelling personal stories about living with mental illness and achieving recovery.
    IOOV is an opportunity for those who have struggled with mental illness to gain confidence and to share their individual experiences of recovery and transformation.
    Throughout the IOOV presentation, audience members are encouraged to offer feedback and ask questions. Audience participation is an important aspect of IOOV because the more audience members become involved, the closer they come to understanding what it is like to live with a mental illness and stay in recovery.
    IOOV presentations are given to consumer groups, students, law enforcement officials, educators, providers, faith community members, politicians, professionals, inmates, and interested civic groups.
    All presentations are offered free of charge.
    Please contact our office to schedule a presentation.  240-254-2636 or send us an email 
    This program is wonderful and shows that there is hope for recovery if we use the tools that are available. Learn more by Clicking on  In Our Own Voice  here you will get to read testimonials of those who have been helped through watching and/or perticipating in IOOV.
