Upcoming Events

Ending The Silence – Presented By NAMI 

Sept 14 - 6:30 PM                                      

NAMI Ending the Silence is an engaging presentation that helps parents and families learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions, facts and statistics and how to talk with your child and how to work with school staff. NAMI Ending the Silence presentations include two leaders: one 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. #mentalhealth
