Mentor Schools Families:
NAMI Lake County is joining us again this year to share its Ending the Silence for Families presentation virtually rather than in-person on Monday, February 22 and Wednesday, February 24, both at 7:00pm via Zoom.
NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Ending the Silence is a free presentation designed to give audience members an opportunity to learn about mental illness. The presentation outlines symptoms of mental health conditions and gives attendees ideas about how to help themselves, friends, or family members who may need support. Additionally, the presentations include personal testimony from young adults living with a mental health condition and their journey to recovery.
All are welcome to attend. Many of our students have already had the opportunity to view this presentation during school time; however, you may still include your child(ren) at your discretion. The program is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
