In collaboration, Nami and The Great Khalid Foundation are coming together to present, Ending the Silence.

Ending the Silence is a 50-minute presentation designed for middle and high school students to help spot warning signs, facts, statistics of mental health, and what resources are available.

According to Psychiatric Times, the overall research suggested that the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent school closures have affected children and adolescents' mental health.

As students and parents continue to navigate uncharted waters, NAMI and The Great Khalid Foundation invite El Paso’s youth to participate in this year’s Ending The Silence virtual workshop.

The virtual workshop will feature a panel of guest speakers, including alternative music artist and Texas native Anastasia Elliot. Elliot, who performed a benefit concert for the Great Khalid Foundation in early 2020, was invited to share her personal mental health journey.

Registration Details:

  • Students between the ages of 13-18 are eligible to register.
