For the Community
Due to the COVID-19 virus, we will not be accepting requests for presentations at this time.
With 1 in 5 Americans living with a mental health condition, almost every workplace is impacted by the challenges that come with addressing this common health issue. NAMI Central Texas offers workplace presentations that break down mental health myths, encourage positive and proactive mental health conversations and provide employees with mental health tips, tools and resources.
In Our Own Voice
In Our Own Voice is a presentation for the general public to promote awareness of mental health conditions and recovery. This presentation is a unique public education program developed by NAMI, in which two trained speakers share compelling personal stories about living with mental illness and achieving recovery.
You’ll have a chance to ask questions, which allows for a deeper understanding of mental health conditions and helps dispel stereotypes and misconceptions
Sharing Hope is a presentation for African American communities designed to promote mental health awareness, explore signs and symptoms of mental health conditions and highlight how and where to find help.
NAMI Smarts for Advocacy
NAMI Smarts for Advocacy is a hands-on advocacy training program that helps people living with mental illness, friends and family transform their passion and lived experience into skillful grassroots advocacy.
NAMI in the Lobby is a new NAMI MC program located at Shady Grove Hospital in Rockville, MD. Since it can be stressful and traumatic to have a loved one in a hospital for a behavioral health related emergency, NITL provides compassion, resources, and hope to families and caregivers. NITL is designed to ease the stress and provide mental health education and support to the families and caregivers. Trained NITL Volunteers have a designated space in the lobby area of the hospital Emergency Department where they will provide information on NAMI and other local mental health resources in the community.
