NAMI Ending the Silence logo

Ending the Silence for Students (ETS) is a 50-minute mental health awareness program for middle and high school age youth. Students learn how to recognize the early warning signs of mental health conditions and what to do if they or someone they know is exhibiting these signs.

ETS instills a message of hope and recovery and encourages students to reduce stigma and end the silence surrounding mental health conditions. The presentation is delivered by two trained speakers, including a young adult who shares his/her experiences living with a mental health condition.

Presentations are available for schools, youth organizations, and communities at no cost.
