Wednesday, March 14th
1635 W. Pratt Street
Join NAMI Metro Baltimore volunteers, Yi Chen and Tevis Simon, as they share personal perspectives of what it’s like to live with a mental health condition. Through storytelling, the NAMI In Our Own Voice presentation changes attitudes, assumptions, and stereotypes about people with mental health conditions. These presentations provide hope for a brighter future and allow audience members to ask questions to deepen their understanding of mental illness.
