Ending the Stigma

Ending the Stigma is a free, 50 minute presentation designed for student audiences.  It is presented by 1-2 individuals who have lived experience with a mental health condition. This in-school presentation is devoted to giving students an opportunity to learn about mental health conditions through an informative PowerPoint, short videos, and personal testimony. Topics include warning signs of mental health conditions, coping strategies, ways to help a friend, and more. After the presentation, students will receive youth-specific resource handout.

If you are interested in scheduling a presentation, please fill out our request form. It is recommended that you put your request in at least three weeks in advance since we rely on volunteer availability.

*NAMI SF Education Programming Policy: Updated January, 2022


Due to the ongoing pandemic and current spike in Covid-19 cases, all NAMI San Francisco educational programming will be offered virtually for the foreseeable future. Our programs are delivered by staff and volunteers, and their health and safety is our first priority.

We currently offer two presentation formats: virtual for virtual classes (via Zoom) or virtual for in-person classes (via Google Meet). In 2021, we worked with teachers and administrators from public and private high schools to deliver presentations in both formats. 

As an organization we understand the value of in-person education and hope to engage students and faculty in person at some point in 2022. 

For more information or to learn more about our virtual programming, please contact Andrew Tuttle (andrew@namisf.org).
