NAMI PARENTS AND TEACHERS AS ALLIESNAMI Parents and Teachers as Allies is a free, two-hour mental health education in-service for school professionals to help them better understand the signs and symptoms of emotional and behavioral difficulties that may be early warning signs of mental illnesses in children and adolescents.
NAMI ENDING THE SILENCEThrough this free classroom presentation, students get to see the reality of living with a mental health condition. During the 50-minute presentation, a young adult living with mental illness and a family member tell their stories about mental health challenges, including what hurt and what helped. Helping middle and high schoolers understand mental illness makes a big difference. We can teach them about the warning signs for themselves and their friends.
NAMI IN OUR OWN VOICEIn Our Own Voice (IOOV) is a unique public education program developed by NAMI, in which two trained individual speakers share compelling personal stories about living with mental illness and achieving recovery. IOOV presentations are given to hospital psychiatric in-patient units, business and consumer groups, students, law enforcement officials, educators, providers, faith community members, politicians, professionals, inmates, and interested civic groups. All presentations are offered free of charge.
