Training Opportunity.  January 21 & 22, Nashville, TN 
 
In Our Own Voice: Living with Mental Illness (IOOV) is so much more than a National Signature program. Consumers (persons diagnosed with mental illness) who are living in recovery learn to tell their life story with maximum impact.  Presenters speak about their challenges, accepting their illness, and treatment that helps. They share the coping skills they have learned and inspire audiences with their successes, hopes and dreams.
 
Consumer presenters tell their stories of how they have hit the depths of pain and isolation and risen to a state of recovery through treatment, support and belief in themselves. It is a program that has inspired audiences all across the country. The presenters are true heroes.
 
IOOV is:

  • A presentation by consumers that creates awareness about what is involved in  recovery from mental illness.
  • A powerful anti-stigma tool to change hearts, minds, and attitudes about mental illness.
  • An opportunity for consumers to gain self-confidence, self-esteem, and income while serving as role models for the community.
  • Living proof that recovery from mental illness is an ongoing reality.

Since it's debut in Tennessee in 2006, IOOV has been presented to more than

14,000 individuals.

TENNESSEE PARITY PROJECT 
 
What is Mental Health Parity and Why is it Important?
Mental health parity means mental illness and substance use conditions must receive the same insurance coverage as physical illness. So if your plan offers unlimited doctor visits for a chronic condition like diabetes, then it must also offer unlimited visits for a mental health condition such as PTSD or anxiety.
Without Mental Health Parity, you are not getting the full range of benefits to which you are entitled.
What is the Tennessee Parity Project?
The Tennessee Parity Project is a coalition to promote state-wide public education on mental health parity. TPP engages in grassroots awareness and compliance education, as well as supporting legislative education and action on the issue.
