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.
