|Let's Talk Mental Illness™
LTMI is a school presentation that features first-hand experience from someone living with a mental illness. A motivational speaker shares his/her personal story of illness, wellness, and recovery along with mental illness facts and statistics to engage your students and shift their perceptions about mental illness.
Bring LTMI to your school and transform the way your students think about mental illness. In this 45-minute interactive classroom or assembly presentation LTMI addresses:
- What is mental illness? Prevalence, symptoms, and how to seek treatment.
- What is it like to have bipolar disorder? A story of recovery and resilience.
- What it is like to live with a mental illness? An interactive exercise.
“I was watching the faces of students in the room who I have worked with that have been diagnosed with a mental illness. I could just sense the relief they must have been feeling,”
