NAMI Ending the Silence (ETS) is a prevention and early intervention program that engages youth, school staff and families in a discussion about mental health. Audience members learn to recognize the early warning signs of mental health conditions and learn what to do if they or someone they know is showing these signs. The chance to hear directly from a young adult with a mental health condition dispels myths, instills a message of hope and recovery and encourages individuals to reduce stigma. Volunteers can get trained to be a lead or young adult presenter. The lead presenter shares an informative presentation via PowerPoint(25 mins), while the young adult presenter shares their journey of recovery (10 mins).

NAMI Indiana offers Ending the Silence for School Staff and Families too. Ending the Silence for School Staff and Families highlights information about warning signs, facts and statistics, how to approach students, how to work with families, and how talk with your child and work with school staff.
