The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) today announced that its free, signature education program for middle school and high school-aged students, NAMI Ending the Silence, is now available on a virtual platform that can be used anywhere.
The online version of NAMI Ending the Silence includes a 25-minute video created by an award-winning digital content agency; a library of 12 personal stories told by a diverse group of young adults; additional videos covering important topics like treatment, self-harm and coping skills; and takeaway resources for teachers and teens.
“The mental health of young people has reached crisis proportions,” said NAMI CEO Daniel H. Gillison Jr. In 2021 87% of parents or caregivers agree that mental health should be taught in schools.
NAMI is committed to addressing this crisis and ensuring people get help early. We know that education and early intervention can make a world of difference, which is why we are expanding our Ending the Silence program online. NAMI Ending the Silence makes mental health education accessible and approachable so that kids know they are not alone.”
