eLearning Available for Ending the Silence

Ending-the-Silence-jpgFrom NAMI California: Ending the Silence, one of NAMI California’s most widely used programs, now has a new training format available for affiliates. Affiliates already running the program can offer new presenters training through an e-learning program developed by NAMI. The program is to allow on-demand training to meet the needs of busy schedules and will record when the training program is completed and a presenter is ready for the next phase of training.

You may review the process for obtaining e-learning in California. If your affiliate has presenters ready for training, please follow the process outlined in the guide (link below). If you have questions, please contact Erik Villalobos at erik@namica.org.

For affiliates that do not already offer the program, NAMI California will be hosting in-person ETS trainings this spring.

Ending the Silence

From NAMI California

In early August, NAMI California will be holding four different Presenter Webinar Trainings for the Ending the Silence program–Apply Today!!

Ending the Silence is a transformational program offered to high school students. In the 50 minute presentation, students are taught about mental illness and then hear about another young person’s own journey with mental illness. The Program has been presented across the state and is growing. In order to keep up with the demand from schools, NAMI California needs more trained presenters!

NAMI California is looking for people who are comfortable with self-disclosure and knowledgeable about mental health. Presenters either have experience with a family member with a mental-health condition, or have experienced a mental-health condition themselves. If you are interested in learning more or getting an application, please contact Beth Larkins at (916) 567-0163 or beth.larkins@namicalifornia.org. NAMI California looks forward to hearing from you
