FREE Resilience Screening and Ending the Silence Webinars

Resilience is a new documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress. You’ll learn how toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. 

NAMI’s Ending the Silence (ETS) is a 60- minute presentation that helps raise awareness around mental health conditions. The presentation includes:

  • Warning signs 
  • Facts and statistics of mental health conditions
  • Suicide awareness and prevention 
  • How to approach your student

NAMI Ending the Silence is an engaging presentation that helps audience members learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions, suicide awareness and prevention, and what steps to take if you or a loved one are showing symptoms of a mental health condition.

NAMI Ending the Silence presentations include two presenters: one who shares an informative presentation and a young adult with a mental health condition who shares their journey of recovery. Audience members can ask questions and gain understanding of an often-misunderstood topic. Through dialogue, we can help grow the movement to end stigma.
