Presenter Training: Presenters are peers (persons with mental mental health conditions) or family members who are ready for the next step in advocacy and are willing to share their story. They are selected through application to NAMI Billings.
A trainer from the NAMI national office provides a two-day course for presenters. During the training, presenters will practice telling their personal stories, develop facilitation skills, develop story points that will be relevant and meaningful to specific audiences, and develop a professional presentation that they could take to their communities.
