Ending the Silence Young Adult Volunteer Presenter

NAMI SOUTH DAKOTA

We all know the teen years are tough, but for young people experiencing symptoms of mental illness, school can be even more challenging. And with 50% of symptoms of all mental health conditions beginning by age 14, a lot of kids are affected-in fact, 1 in 5 of them are. And many don’t get help because they don’t know how to speak up.

We’re helping to end the silence about mental illness in middle schools and high schools. Trained presenters give kids the tools to help themselves and their friends, and let them know they’re not alone. That’s big. Most kids who see an Ending the Silence presentation say it’s the first time someone has talked to them about mental illness.

Would you like to help? The online training is available now. If you are a young adult age 18-35, living well in recovery with a mental health condition, and have the flexibility to volunteer during business hours, we want to hear from you.
