Ending the Silence Presenters

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation's largest grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of people living with serious mental illness and their families.

NAMI Ending the Silence is a free presentation led by 2 presenters: one lead presenter shares an informative presentation about mental health and a young adult presenter shares their personal story of living with a mental health condition, followed by Q&A.

The presentation can be adapted for three audiences: students, school staff, and families, and has been shown to is effective in improving middle and high school students’ knowledge and attitudes toward mental health conditions and toward seeking help, both immediately after the presentation and after 4-6 weeks.

Presentations are typically held at the school, but can also be conducted virtually if need be. Volunteers are needed to help lead the presentations.

  • Complete an online training and in-person/virtual half day training with the Program and Outreach Coordinator.
  • Must be a family member or person with a mental health condition, and over 18 years of age
  • Comfortable being out in the community and with public speaking, or have a willingness to learn
