NAMI Mass Sharing Our Stories logo

NAMI Mass Sharing Our Stories (SOS) is an impactful presentation delivered by two family members of people living with mental health conditions. Two trained presenters share their experiences as caregivers or supporters and their personal journeys. Audience members will have the chance to ask questions and engage in discussion with the speakers.

NAMI Mass is currently training speakers for our new SOS program and plans to begin scheduling presentations in fall 2022. If you are interested in booking an SOS presentation, please contact Sarah Ford at to be added to our waitlist.
