NAMI Southwest Ohio

NAMI Southwest Ohio is dedicated to improving the lives of families and individuals affected by mental illness through education, support and advocacy.



NAMI Ending the Silence is a no-cost classroom presentation
designed for middle school and high school students.


It’s important that we help students learn
more about mental health conditions


Here’s why:


1 in 5 kids experiences a mental health condition;
only 20% of them actually get help

About 50% of students ages 14+ with a
mental health condition will drop out of school

Suicide is the second-leading cause of
death for 15-24 year olds

The earlier the better:
early identification and intervention provides better outcomes
