NAMI launches virtual mental health education program for teens

With the growing need for mental health resources, support and education, NAMI has developed the virtual version of NAMI Ending the Silence accessible anywhere an in-person presentation is not available locally.

The online version of NAMI Ending the Silence includes a 25-minute video created by an award-winning digital content agency; a library of 12 personal stories told by a diverse group of young adults; additional videos covering important topics such as treatment, self-harm and coping skills; and take-home resources for teachers and teens. The videos are all offered with Spanish subtitles, and a testimonial is delivered by a native Spanish speaker.

Public opinion polls show broad support for mental health education in schools. In fact, NAMI discovered in 2021 that 87% of parents or caregivers agree that mental health should be taught in schools, a need that NAMI Ending the Silence will help fill. To learn more or request a presentation, please visit ets.nami.org.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to improving the lives of affected individuals and families by mental illness.
