NAMI Ending the Silence (ETS) is a presentational program for teens to help reduce the stigma around mental illness (including depression), to educate youth on possible signs of developing mental illness, to educate youth on the possible signs of suicidal ideation, and to provide youth with resources for responding to those situations.  Each 50-minute presentation consists of a lead presenter (someone who either has a mental illness or has a family member with mental illness) giving a PowerPoint presentation on the signs and symptoms of mental illness and how to help.  A young adult (18 – 35 years old) living well with mental illness then relates his/her story. A question-and-answer session follows. The program is effective at raising awareness, encourage early identification and giving a human face to mental illness. 


This program is appropriate for middle school and high school aged youth, in the classroom or as a program for church and civic youth groups. If you have any questions please contact Sheryl Smith at 262-346-1966 or sheryl.namiwashington@gmail.com

Since September 2015  NAMI Washington County has reached over 1800 young people each school year in classes throughout Washington County with its NAMI Ending the Silence (ETS) program.
