NAMI Ending the Silence is an engaging presentation that helps audience members learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions and what steps to take if you or a loved one are showing symptoms of a mental health condition.

NAMI Ending the Silence presentations typically include two leaders: One who shares an informative presentation, and a young adult with a mental health condition who shares their journey of recovery.

Audience members are welcome to ask questions to gain an understanding of an often misunderstood topic. Through dialogue, we can help grow the movement to end stigma.

NAMI Ending the Silence for Students: 50-minute presentation designed for middle and high school students that includes warning signs, facts, statistics, and how to get help for themselves or a friend.

NAMI Ending the Silence for School Staff: 1-hour presentation for school staff members that includes information about warning signs, facts, and statistics, how to approach students, and how to work with families.

NAMI Ending the Silence for Families: 1-hour presentation for adults with middle or high school-aged youth that includes warning signs, facts, and statistics, how to talk with your child, and how to work with school staff.

Communities In Schools programs surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success.

Basic Needs: A student cannot focus in the classroom if he or she is hungry, cold or tired, or cannot see the board. Site coordinators see to it that students' basic needs are met each day.

Enrichment: Our Site coordinators enroll students in a wide variety of after-school and summer programs, field trips and youth conferences to help them gain experience that is essential to meeting college and career goals.

Academic Assistance: Our site coordinators work hard to ensure that students have the resources to progress academically. From providing students with tutors to finding and creating quiet spaces where students can study, we do whatever it takes to create an optimal learning environment for our students.

Life Skills: Through one-on-one workshops, team building, and guest speakers, we work with students to develop social-emotional learning, character education, social skills building, and conflict resolution.

Behavioral Interventions: Many of our students face and overcome difficult obstacles in their lives. However, their survival skills aren’t always effective in the classroom or in the workplace. Our program teaches students positive ways to cope with anger, conflict resolution, and other strategies to keep them focused on school.

Family Engagement: Site coordinators connect families with counselors and social workers to make sure that home is a healthy, nurturing environment where a student can feel safe.

Building industry professionals and educators help high school students learn more about potential careers in architecture, engineering, and construction.
 
During the program, students work in teams under the mentorship of experienced professionals, who guide them through projects that meet real industry requirements. The result is an opportunity to gain practical insight into what building industry professionals do to transform their ideas from an initial concept into a finished building.
 
Students also visit professional firms, attend College Night at the University of Texas at San Antonio CACP, and attend lectures on industry topics.
 
At the conclusion of the program year, students present their design solutions and receive feedback from local industry leaders.
 
In addition, every qualified senior who goes on to university study in a building industry-related field is eligible for a local scholarship.

Life Skills: Through one-on-one workshops, team building, and guest speakers, we work with students to develop social-emotional learning, character education, social skills building, and conflict resolution.

Behavioral Interventions: Many of our students face and overcome difficult obstacles in their lives. However, their survival skills aren’t always effective in the classroom or in the workplace. Our program teaches students positive ways to cope with anger, conflict resolution, and other strategies to keep them focused on school.

Family Engagement: Site coordinators connect families with counselors and social workers to make sure that home is a healthy, nurturing environment where a student can feel safe.

This program is for students at L.E.E. High School.

Communities In Schools programs surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success.

Basic Needs: A student cannot focus in the classroom if he or she is hungry, cold or tired, or cannot see the board. Site coordinators see to it that students' basic needs are met each day.

Enrichment: Our Site coordinators enroll students in a wide variety of after-school and summer programs, field trips and youth conferences to help them gain experience that is essential to meeting college and career goals.

Academic Assistance: Our site coordinators work hard to ensure that students have the resources to progress academically. From providing students with tutors to finding and creating quiet spaces where students can study, we do whatever it takes to create an optimal learning environment for our students.

Choose to Change Mentoring is a program offered by the Choose to Change Foundation. We work directly with men coming out of prison and struggling with drugs and alcohol. Our self-supporting, Christian-based program meets weekly (one-hour meetings). We believe in the life-changing power of God through faith in Jesus Christ. 

We teach personal development, personal responsibility, and life skills through our meetings and events. Drug and alcohol education is crucial to all our programs, classes & events. Membership is entirely free, but we encourage donations from our members and anyone who believes in what we do. 

Our mentoring program is designed to give people a starting point for a better future. We do not claim to have all the answers, but be assured that we do have answers.

A.C.D.C = Accountability, Consistency, Discipline & Courage. These are the core values at the forefront of our program. People, especially men, will be challenged to become more than they ever thought possible. This will be accomplished through our structured weekly meetings, events, and a “60-day mentoring challenge” available to all members. We believe people need to be inspired, challenged, and equipped to believe in what may seem impossible.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about our program. Please take a few minutes to read through the rest of this page. If you would like a closer look at what we do and why we do it, please give us a call or come by one of our weekly meetings or events.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

CAST MED builds on San Antonio’s unique strengths and current educational gaps with an emphasis on medicine and biomedical research. UT Health, with its research expertise and growing focus on population health and health disparities, is a key partner in helping design a path for students wishing to improve the health of our community. CAST MED will incorporate a three-way educational partnership between UT Health, the University of Texas at San Antonio, and San Antonio ISD.

Students enrolled in CAST MED will follow one of three pathways:
