NAMI Ending the Silence

NAMI Ending the Silence is an inter­active presentation that helps teens to learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions as well as what steps they should take to find support for themselves or their friends.

It is a 50-minute presentation designed for middle and high school age youth. It is free of cost to schools, youth, and communities and presented by a young adult who experienced a mental health condition during their school years as well as a family member of an individual who experienced mental health challenges in school.

If your school is interested in sched­uling a presentation, please call or email the NAMI Syracuse office.

If you are a young adult or family member and would like to become a NAMI Ending the Silence presenter, a training is scheduled for Monday, January 21, 2019 at the NAMI Syra­cuse office. Please call or email for a registration form and/or more information.
