Ending the Silence Matters – Sunday, October 21, 2018

Ending the Silence Matters

Ending the Silence is a program for students in grades 7 – 12 that helps inform youth about the warning signs of mental health conditions and what steps to take if they or a loved one experience symptoms of a mental illness. A lead presenter from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) shares an informative presentation and a young adult living with a mental health condition shares their journey of recovery. Questions and answers follow and audience members gain understanding of an often-misunderstood topic.

Ending the Silence for Families is a presentation for parents and primary caregivers. It includes warning signs, facts and statistics, how to talk to your child and best ways to work with school staff.

Sunday, October 21st 6:30 – 8:30 pm at St. James Cathedral Pastoral Outreach Center (907 Columbia Street, Seattle)

Presentations begin at 7:00 pm *Refreshments provided

Open to students and parents from all parishes Info: Curtis Leighton, cleighton@stjames-cathedral.org or Nancy Granger ngranger@stjames-cathedral.org
