Ending the Silence


Ending the Silence is a 50-minute program designed for middle and high school audiences and is typically presented in the freshman/sophomore health classes during the mental health portion of the curriculum.


This transformational program is devoted to giving students an opportunity to learn about mental illness through an informative PowerPoint, short
videos, and personal testimony. Through the presentation, students learn symptoms and indicators of mental illness, and are given ideas about how to help themselves, friends, or family members who may be in need of support.

How the program works:

The program is delivered by a trained two-person team, including an individual who relates to the student population by sharing their own journey with a diagnosable mental health condition.

Students are given a resource card with valuable phone numbers and websites for mental health agencies and youth support services along with a list of symptoms/warning signs of mental illness. A letter is sent home to parents letting them know we presented to their class which also contains information on mental health resources. Students are also given information regarding additional programs and services they can utilize for support.

A primary goal of this program is to create a generation of students that are well-positioned to eradicate the stigma associated with mental illness through education and advocacy.
