Event description

Description

This event is open to all parents and teachers regardless of home campus or level. The content is applicable to children/adolescents in elementary, middle, or high school. NAMI Parents and Teachers as Allies is a free, two-hour mental health education in-service for school professionals and parents to help them better understand the signs and symptoms of emotional and behavioral difficulties that may be early warning signs of mental illnesses in children and adolescents.

The in-service program follows a structured format covering issues frequently faced by school professionals, parents and other family caregivers to give them a better understanding of:

  • The early warning signs of mental illness
  • The lived experience of parents raising a child with a mental illness
  • The challenges that children and adolescents face when emotional and behavioral disturbances are part of their school life

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 Greater Houston is an affiliate of NAMI Texas. NAMI Greater Houston 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.
