The National Alliance on Mental Illness St. Louis (NAMI STL) is hiring multiple young adult presenters for our Ending the Silence program. ETS is a 50-minute program in middle and high schools that addresses the signs and symptoms of mental illness, and works to reduce stigma around the topic. Presenters share their personal experience with mental illness and answer student questions about those experiences as they feel comfortable. If you’re between 18-30, have experience with mental health issues, are able to teach workshops in school, and have reliable personal transportation, you may be a good candidate for this role.

 

Scheduling is extremely flexible. After you are trained, you are able to sign up to present to classes that fit your schedule. You will be paid a fee per presentation, and receive mileage reimbursement. This is an ideal opportunity for:

•            Future teachers who want more experience in front of a class

•            Mental health advocates

•            Social workers who may facilitate groups or workshops

•            Healthcare professionals

•            Mentors and leaders who want to reduce stigma around mental health conditions

•            Those who want to give back to the community

 

If this job is of interest to you or you have questions, please contact Jessie Brown at jbrown@namistl.org


 Please indicate that you are interested in becoming an ETS Young Adult presenter in the subject line, and include contact information and a resume, if possible.


We plan to start the hiring and training process now, and teaching opportunities are presently available this school year. We have need for many speakers, so please feel free to encourage any friends or family who fit this job description to get in contact with Jessie Brown. We want speakers with a variety of life experiences, so if you do not hear your story told, this could be an opportunity to expand the conversation around mental health to include more stories like yours.
