Please join us for the next Community Learning Series - ENDING THE SILENCE,  a 1-hour presentation for adults with middle or high school-aged youth. 

Ending the Silence is an engaging presentation from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) where they will share what they have learned about mental illness -- the warning signs, facts, and statistics, as well as how to talk with your child and how to work with school staff. Specifically, Ending the Silence for Families is a module designed for parents and caregivers of young students. 
The presentation gives an opportunity for audience members to ask questions and learn more about an often-misunderstood topic. The message of empathy and hope encourages people to actively care for themselves and for their peers, whether by reaching out for help, encouraging a friend or family member to seek help or by reducing stigma.
