Ending the Silence: A Free Presentation about Teen Mental Health

February 15th, 2016 · No Comments

The Seattle affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) will be hosting an awareness event called Ending the Silence in March as part of their ongoing Speaker Series. The free presentation will take place in the Lake City Library Meeting Room (12501 28th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125) on March 7th from 6:30-8pm.

One in five children experiences a mental health condition, and suicide is the second-leading cause of death for 15-24 year olds. Ending the Silence is an awareness program intended to teach teens about the early warning signs of mental health conditions and when, where, and how to get help for themselves and their friends. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from two presenters including a young adult living with a mental illness.
