For Children and Teens
Ending the Silence
Learn about mental illnesses and the signs and symptoms. Also hear the personal story of a young adult who is doing well in recovery. Students receive resources to get help for themselves or for a friend and information on how to fight the stigma of mental illnesses in their school. Ending the Silence is a 50-minute class intended for high school students.
Learn from other teens and young adults how to maintain good mental health by recognizing early signs of returning symptoms, understanding how to deal with stress and anxiety, and teaching siblings, parents and friends how to help you. This workshop is taught by a trained young adult and empowers individuals to take charge of their lives by providing education and information on mental illnesses, treatment options and the hope for recovery. It’s a safe space to talk to others who are going through similar experiences and to not feel alone. This workshop meets for 6 two-hour sessions and is for teens.
