NAMI Ending the Silence is an engaging presentation that helps audiences learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions and what to do if you or a loved one show symptoms.

In presentations, a lead presenter shares an informative presentation and a young adult with a mental health condition 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.
