Can you help us?
More local school districts than ever are scheduled to participate
in NAMI Ending the Silence!
Ending the Silence is our educational program for youth and young adults.
The most impactful part of ETS includes having a young adult share their personal experience with mental health.
We are in GREAT need of those willing to share this experience and it only takes 8 to 10 minutes

NAMI Peer-to-Peer is a free, eight-session educational program for adults with mental health conditions who are looking to better understand themselves and their recovery.

Taught by trained leaders with lived experience, this program includes activities, discussions and informative videos. However, as with all NAMI programs, it does not include recommendations for treatment approaches.

Our next session will be coming soon!
