NAMI Billings Overview
A 45- to 60-minute presentation providing an overview of the programs we offer. Our support groups, education classes, and community presentations focus on mental illness and how it impacts everyday life.
Family & Friends
A 2- or 4-hour PowerPoint presentation open to family members and friends of people with mental health conditions as well as the general public. It teaches participants about the warning signs of mental illness, treatment options, communication strategies, crisis preparation, coping techniques, and empathy. Each presenter will share their story with a Q&A following.
In Our Own Voice
A 60- to 90-minute presentation led by people living with mental health conditions. These role models of hope and recovery will share their personal testimonies of living with and overcoming the challenges posed by mental illness. Audience discussion and participation are encouraged, and a brief video is shared. By broadening people’s knowledge of mental illness, we replace misunderstanding, fear, and judgment with insight, awareness, and acceptance.
