2016 Promising Program of the Year

National Alliance on Mental Illness on Campus High School

NAMI on Campus clubs work to end the stigma that makes it hard for students to talk about mental health and get the help they need. Clubs hold creative meetings, and hold innovative awareness events.

NAMI on Campus High School clubs are student-led, student-run mental health organizations on high school campuses. These clubs promote student voice, increase awareness of mental health and wellness, provide suicide prevention strategies, inspire advocacy, promote acceptance for students and staff experiencing mental health issues and/or living with mental illness, and promote a poistive school climate that fosters health, respectful relationships among students, staff, and familymembers, and strengthens students’ feelings of connectedness to their school.

Please join us in recognizing the National Alliance of Mental Illness on Campus High School as they receive their award at the CMHACY conference on Thursday, May 12th, 2016 at 10:00am in Merrill Hall.
