Honest, Open, and Proud

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 and adults, a workshop designed to explore the decisions we make when we talk about our stories related to mental illness and recovery, at no charge to participants.

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