Grades 6-12

Raise Your Voice – A new youth movement launched by NAMI Wisconsin that empowers teens to create a new conversation about mental health through education, leadership development and civic advocacy.

Ending the Silence – NAMI Ending the Silence is a 50-minute presentation designed to give students an opportunity to learn about mental health conditions through an informative PowerPoint and short videos. The presentation educates students about the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions and gives them ideas about how to help themselves, family members, or friends who may be in need of support. The program also includes personal testimony from a youth or young adult with lived experience about their journey in learning to cope with their mental health challenges.

Your Journey – Teens & Young Adults – A mental health condition isn’t your fault or your family’s fault — these conditions develop for complicated reasons that researchers are only just starting to understand. But we do know a lot about how you can live well with a mental health condition. You have the power to improve your mental health. And it starts with one conversation.
