Program Description

Program Details


Parents and caregivers are invited to an engaging presentation to learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions and what steps to take if you or a loved one are showing symptoms of a mental illness. 

NAMI Ending the Silence presentations include a lead presenter 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.

This presentation is for parents, caregivers, and families with young adults.

Watch for an upcoming NAMI Ending the Silence event for teens in May!

Presented in partnership with Ames Public Library and National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Iowa.
