The NAMI Ending the Silence Volunteer Experience:

NAMI Indiana is currently looking for volunteers for our NAMI Ending the Silence presentation. 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).

Training:

NAMI Ending the Silence volunteers will go through a self-paced online training. Once the training is completed, volunteers must complete a mock presentation with the NAMI Indiana staff before being cleared to give their first presentation.

Minimum Time Commitment Requirements:

We ask all volunteers to commit to at least 1 presentation per month when applicable.

Program leader qualifications:

Prospective leaders must meet one of the following descriptions: (1) young adult age 18-35 in recovery with a mental health condition; (2) adult who is either a family member or a person with a mental health
condition.
