Expanding Basics and Ending the Silence to Rural Communities

Expanding Basics and Ending the Silence to Rural Communities

With grant support from the Ford Family Foundation, NAMI Oregon is working to expand NAMI Basics and Ending the Silence into rural communities in our state. We will be holding trainings for both Ending the Silence presenters and Basics teachers in Roseburg this summer:

Ending the Silence Presenter Training – June 22 & 23
Douglas Education Service District
1871 NE Stephens St.

Basics Teacher Training – July 20 & 21
Ford Family Foundation
1600 NW Stewart Parkway

Both trainings are intended primarily for program leaders from rural communities. The Basics training will be conducted by Dr. Teri Brister, who developed the Basics program for NAMI. Training applications are available to download from the Trainings page of the NAMI Oregon website. Funding will be available to NAMI affiliates serving rural communities to help launch or expand these programs. Please help us bring these crucial programs to more rural areas by encouraging volunteers to become leaders of these programs in their communities.

Download flyers to help recruit new Basics teachers and new Young Adult Ending the Silence presenters.
