Please join us for our February 20, 2014 Forum. Raighne Kirk will present NAMI’s newest signature program, “Ending the Silence”, a program especially designed for high school audiences and typically presented in the freshman/sophomore health classes during the mental health portion of the curriculum. This program was developed by Dupage County Illinois, NAMI and has been adopted as a National NAMI Signature Program.
This interactive program which provides key resource materials for students, seeks to inform them about the basic signs and symptoms of mental illnesses and reduce the stigma through personal stories.
The informational and interactive power point is the first part of the presentation and the personal story is the second. There have been students who have seen the presentation and directed their parents to our Parent Support Group and Parent Education Class.
Find out how you can get involved with this new program and how it can come to your school district.
