Strengthening Schools

For students, their school community is a critical part of their support network and emotional safety net. We will work directly with high schools, colleges, and universities in the area to put systems, programs, and policies in place to create a culture of caring that protects student mental health and makes it more likely students will seek help and struggling students will be recognized, connected to mental health care, and supported.

Student Led Programs

Establish student-led clubs that raise mental health awareness and reduce stigma on campus through peer-led activities and education. Student Leaders will be empowered with toolkits, materials, templates, and resources to make running the club a fun and educational process. The Club is open to all students – those with mental health conditions, those with family members with a condition, or students who are interested in the field or in advocacy.

Presentations: On-site & Virtual

We offer 40-minute on-site and virtual presentations from NAMI-certified speakers. These presentations are an opportunity to hear open and honest persprectives on a misunderstood topic. It's also an opportunity for students and teachers to ask questions and deepen their understanding about mental health. Fill out the form below to request a presentation.

Working With


NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI Alameda County is an affiliate of NAMI California. NAMI Alameda County and dedicated volunteer members and leaders work tirelessly to raise awareness and provide essential education, advocacy and support group programs for people in our community living with mental illness and their loved ones.

What is NAMI Ending the Silence? NAMI Ending the Silence is a free presentation designed to give audience members an opportunity to learn about mental illness through an informative Power Point and short videos. There are three types of Ending the Silence presentations: one for Students, one for School Staff, and one for Families. Each presentation outlines symptoms of mental health conditions and gives attendees ideas about how to help themselves, friends, or family members who may need support. Additionally, all 3 presentations include personal testimony from a young adult living with a mental health condition and his/her journey to recovery.
