Ending the Silence is one of our newest evidence-based programs!
It is a national mental health education program for middle school and high school students, based on real-life experiences. It will encourage students to take care of themselves and each other. The program also focuses on warning signs for mental illness, the importance of good mental health and suicide prevention as well as practical ways peers can help peers.
The program provides real faces and real-life stories that help students learn more effectively. NAMI Ending the Silence presentations include two leaders: one who shares an informative presentation and a young adult with a mental health condition who shares their journey of recovery. Audience members can ask questions and gain understanding of an often-misunderstood topic. Through dialogue, we can help grow the movement to end stigma.
