Emerge from Stigma: Voices of Hope & Resiliency  

Our lived experience – our stories - is where the power and impact lies to change lives, create system change and help eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness and suicide. Through the NAMI Maine Speakers Bureau, the sharing of our personal stories helps:

·      Increase understanding and awareness of risk factors and warning signs for mental illness and suicide

·         Educate the public about mental health, mental illness and recovery

·         Provide insight to suicide and suicide loss

·         Create system change by sharing lived experiences of what helps, what works and what doesn’t

We are a team of survivors of suicide loss, attempt survivors, individuals living with a mental illness and those family members and friends who care about them.
