Want to make a difference in your community?
Join NAMI Long Beach’s Ending the Silence team and be a presenter that travels to community middle or high schools.
Ending the Silence is a 50-minute inservice presentation for youth. If you have the desire to talk with youth and encourage good mental health and explain about mental illnesses, we should talk!
Training for the presentation is included, it’s easy and it’s rewarding. Listen to what Jenny Compton, NAMI volunteer, had to say after viewing an Ending the Silence presentation - “I really enjoyed the Ending the Silence presentation and I am so impressed by how well the presenters did. I feel like the Presenters really spoke to the students on their level, and succeeded to normalize this very misunderstood topic. Both Presenters shared their personal stories and struggles with mental illness so well, the students instantly felt at ease. It was great. The mental illness material was so clear-cut and understandable. This program would have helped me to feel less awkward and I bet I would have sought help a lot earlier.” Thank you!
