Serious mental health conditions often make a first appearance when people are in their teens and early twenties. If ignored and/or left untreated, these brain disorders may result in great harm. Ending the Silence is a 50-minute presentation NAMI volunteers make to educate students, parents, and teachers about the early signs of a mental condition and how to get help.

Presentations typically take place at schools, community events, and faith organizations. Presenters include an older adult, who explains how a mental condition has touched their life and offers basic information on mental health conditions, and personal testimony from a young adult living with a mental health condition about their journey to recovery. All presenters, young and old, receive training in a 6-hour online course.

Ending the Silence presentations are available upon request. To request a presentation or become a volunteer presenter, please contact the office at or 734-994-6611.
