Help NAMI End the Silence!

Submit an entry to NAMI’s Video Contest for a chance to win up to $5,000! (The contest is open to NAMI members or active volunteers with a NAMI State Organization or NAMI Affiliate only.)

Are you a budding videographer or know people who love being behind the lens? Then don’t miss a chance to submit a video to our NAMI Ending the Silence Video Contest. All video submissions are due by January 11, 2021 (submit here).

NAMI is seeking new videos to use in our NAMI Ending the Silence (ETS) for Students presentation program. NAMI ETS is an evidence-based program that helps middle and high school students learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions and what steps to take if they or a loved one are showing symptoms. For more detailed information about NAMI ETS, click here.

Our previous ETS videos featured high school students, as part of the Directing Change Project in California, and covered topics such as fighting stigma around mental health conditions, how to be a friend to someone in need, information about specific symptoms and other topics that middle and high school students can relate to.

If you or someone you know would be interested, read more about the requirements for submitting here.
