May 2014Vol. 15, No. 5Raising Mental Health Awareness Toolkit
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) released a toolkit to support presentations to college-age students about mental health. Raising Mental Health Awareness—Educate Yourself and Educate Others offers educators key resources to inform students about mental health issues. The presentation tools promote productive dialogue about various issues related to mental health and point to resources available for those who need help.
The toolkit contains a presentation guide, presentation slides, factsheets, resource templates, and marketing outreach templates. Each component can be downloaded and customized to meet individual needs. While designed for educators, this toolkit can easily be adapted to aid social workers and other child welfare professionals in discussing mental health-related issues with youth.
The toolkit is available on the NAMI website:
