NAMI Ending the Silence is a free prevention and early intervention mental health education program that engages youth, school staff, and families in a discussion about mental health and suicide based on real-life experiences.
Now—more than ever— we are seeing an increase in youth reporting about their mental health struggles and suicidal thoughts. With online/hybrid learning becoming the “new normal,” NAMI Connecticut needs to educate students, school staff, and their families about mental health and to remind them they are not alone. As an Ending the Silence presenter you can make a big difference.
About the Presenter Training:
NAMI Ending the Silence presenters are volunteers who become certified by attending and graduating from a one day training. The training is designed for presenters to learn and practice specific skills that will guarantee a meaningful and informative educational experience for all participants. After the training, certified presenters know how to deliver their stories; encourage collective thought and questions; and direct energy towards productive outcomes. Presenter trainees are required to go through an application and screening process before being approved to attend a training event. Both adults with personal experience with mental health conditions (i.e. as a parent, as a family member, or as an adult with lived experience) and young adults with personal experience with mental health conditions are needed to serve as NAMI Ending the Silence presenters.

TurningPointCT.org was developed by young people in Connecticut who are in recovery from mental health and substance use issues. We know what it’s like to feel alone, stressed, worried, sad, and angry. We’ve lived through the ups and downs of self-harm, drugs and alcohol, and the struggle to find help.
