Honest, Open & Proud

Teens: Learn how to tell your story!

 

 Have you experienced mental health  challenges? What is your story? Did you know  that people with lived experience who  strategically share their stories is one of the  most effective (and evidence-based) ways to  reduce stigma?

 

NAMI Fox Valley is pleased to offer "Honest, Open and Proud" for teens, a free workshop designed to explore the decisions we make when we talk about our stories related to mental illness and recovery.

 

This is a great opportunity for teens to learn how to share their stories and provide education that helps eliminate the stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination that make up the stigma of mental health conditions.

 

Fall workshop:

 

Saturday, Nov. 5, 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at NAMI Fox Valey
