NAMI Say It Out Loud

Overview

Youth leaders and Youth MOVE Virginia advisory board members Arianna Gray, Suzanna Woods and Hayden Myer participated in the making of a new film by NAMI called “Say It Out Loud.” In partnership with the OK2Talk Campaign, NAMI is using the video as a tool to promote conversations about mental health among youth and young adults. Toolkits are now available to be disseminated to various organizations across the country, including NAMI affiliates! In addition to the film, toolkits include a short educational presentation for an adult facilitator, a discussion guide and fact sheets. Check out the video here!
