Health equity is a term we often hear these days, but how do we implement policies and procedures that will make a difference? Join us to learn more about equity in action, the 10 Essential Public Health Services, and community research best-practices. Participants will hear from community partners statewide who are working to address equity. We will end with a practical exercise to help you implement what you learn.
All routes begin and end in Victor C. Waryas Park in Poughkeepsie, NY—right next to the Metro-North train station. Please refer below for start time windows and route summaries. Be advised that you cannot join a route prior to the specific window opening or after it has closed.
If you miss your intended timeframe, you must drop back to a shorter mileage. Timing is based on the availability of route support and services. We ask that you arrive 30 minutes prior to the close of your start time window to allow enough time for check-in.
In Our Own Voice is an interactive presentation that provides insight into what it’s like to live with a mental health condition.
National Alliance on Mental Illness Dutchess County presents In Our Own Voice – a unique one-hour public education program in which two trained speakers share their compelling personal stories of living with mental health challenges and achieving recovery. This presentation includes videos and discussion.
This presentation provides:
- An opportunity to hear open and honest perspectives on a highly misunderstood topic.
- A safe place to ask questions, allowing for a deeper understanding of mental health conditions and dispelling of stereotypes and misconceptions. Through dialogue, we help grown the movement to build better lives.
- The understanding that people who live with mental health conditions have lives enriched by hopes, dreams and goals.
- Information on how to learn more about and support mental health and how to get involved in the community.
We believe through community awareness presentations like this, we can help bring hope to those who deal with mental health challenges, and their families and the greater community we share.
Come see our two presenters as they walk you through their journey to recovery… they will speak of their personal stories and give hope.
Zoom information will be emailed one hour before event. Please add email@example.com to your address book or safe sender list to ensure the email goes into your Inbox.
