NAMI Ending the Silence Community Preview Presentation
August 20, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDTFree
NAMI Bucks County is holding a community preview of our early intervention mental health education presentation, Ending the Silence, live on Zoom at 7:00 PM on Thursday, August 20th. All are welcome.
You will learn about the warning signs and symptoms of mental health conditions and how to help yourself and/or a friend, treatment options, positive coping skills, and ways to avoid negative coping skills such as substance use, self-injury and suicide. Our three speakers with lived experience, Andrea, Reggie and AmandaGrace will speak openly about their journeys from a diagnosis into recovery, including how seeking help earlier would have prevented hardship.
You bring the curiosity, we’ll bring the inspiration and hope. Ending the Silence is a FREE mental health and suicide awareness presentation for middle and high schools – public, private or charter – anywhere in Bucks County. Teachers, administrators, and community organizations will have the opportunity to schedule virtual or in-person presentations for the upcoming school year.
