Sharing Hope provides high-quality videos, facilitator guides, and other resources that NAMI affiliates and partners can use to host welcoming and culturally competent “Community Conversations” that break down stigma, challenge stereotypes, and make it safe and easy to talk about mental well-being with facilitators that participants can relate to and trust. Separate modules are available for family, youth and community leaders, and the materials can be adapted to diverse settings, from churches to the barbershop to large community celebrations.
As a national launch partner, NAMI Pinellas is providing resources, preparing facilitators, and gathering feedback to help Affiliates and other partners foster these dialogues and welcome more people to our NAMI community. For more information or to participate, contact Senior Program Manager Jessica Kushner.
NAMI Pinellas will offer Sharing Hope and Compartiendo Esperanza in August at the Pathway for Hope Conference August 26-27, 2022.
