Tags: , ,


Raising awareness by sharing information and starting conversations about mental health is key in reducing stigma and increasing the likelihood that teens will seek mental health care when they need it. NAMI created Say it Out Loud toolkit to get teens talking about mental health.

Say it Out Loud gives adults the tools they need to hold conversations about mental health with teens. The toolkit includes:

  • A short film featuring three teen’s experiences
  • A discussion guide
  • A narrated presentation for the facilitator
  • Fact sheets and information about connecting with your local NAMI

In addition, learn more about how to use the toolkit as well as share your feedback with NAMI.
