Request a NAMI Seattle Presentation
NAMI Seattle’s network of trained volunteer program leaders are available to speak to your community. Through personal stories, up-to-date information, and evidence-based strategies, these presentations are a great way to educate and engage your community around mental health, as well as building your own skills and knowledge. Free presentations include In Our Own Voice (a 90-minute program for general audiences) and Ending the Silence (a 50-minute program for middle & high schoolers or the adults in their lives).
All programs are currently available in virtual formats. In Our Own Voice has limited availability in person as well. At this time we are unable to offer Ending the Silence in person; we hope to resume in-person presentations for this program soon.
To request a presentation, please fill out and submit the program request form and one of our staff members will follow up with you.

This 1-hour presentation for caregivers of middle or high school aged youth includes mental health warning signs, facts and statistics, how to talk with your child and how to work with school staff.
What People Are Saying
Our staff has had MANY conversations after the IOOV presentation last year. I feel that they are much more vocal when advocating for patients with mental health crisis.
It is amazing what just one day, one talk can do. You never really know what’s going on in the brain of any particular student.
I’m really grateful and glad that you talked to us. I often feel very alone or weird because many kids my age don’t understand. But, now I’m sure they would be more supportive of me.
