NAMI Ending the Silence - A mental health awareness program for teens
Ending The Silence Model Presentation Video
Mental Illness: What You See / What You Don't See

ACES Trauma Training for Educators (Free) This is a free 43 minute video training resource designed to give anyone who works with children important trauma-focused information about how student learning and behavior is impacted by trauma and how educators and support staff can help students develop a greater sense of safety at school and begin to build new emotional regulation skills. As educators, we have to learn to not see the student's trauma response as defiance, disrespect, boredom, or intentional manipulation, but rather a protective response that requires safety in order to settle and help the child return to their "thinking" brain.

NAMI Ending the Silence. Helping middle and high schoolers understand mental illness makes a big difference. We can teach them about the warning signs for themselves and their friends. NAMI Ending the Silence helps raise awareness and change perceptions around mental health conditions. Through this free classroom presentation, students get to see the reality of living with a mental health condition. During the 50-minute presentation, a young adult living with mental illness and a family member tell their stories about mental health challenges, including what hurt and what helped. What Your Students Get

Moving stories from positive role models have the power to change kids' views. The discussion gives students the rare opportunity to ask questions about mental health challenges to people who have lived it. The presentation’s message of empathy and hope encourages students to actively care for themselves and their friends. It also teaches them it's okay to talk about what they're feeling. NAMI Ending the Silence covers:

  • Early warning signs
  • Facts and statistics about youth and mental health conditions
  • When, where and how to get help for themselves or their friends
  • When it’s not okay to keep a secret

Resolve, Fundamentals of Mediation provides training, consultation, coaching, and on-site support to schools for whole school implementation of restorative justice and education programs for students on the topics of conflict resolution and bullying intervention. Restorative justice provides a framework for building student accountability and responding to wrongdoing while strengthening student and community relationships. It is not a singular program or process, rather a philosophy and practice based on a core set of principles that emphasize healing and repair over punishment, inclusion over exclusion, and individual accountability with a high level of community support. Please note: Resolve also offers Family Mediation services.

Resolve: Getting results with restorative justice programs. Our remarkable partner organization, Resolve, is one of the hosts for the Northwest Justice Forum listed above. Resolve is having a definite impact in our region with the Restorative Justice programs they lead in many of our local schools.

Some results to note: at North Medford High School, there have been 63% fewer referrals for disrespect, and 78% fewer referrals for weapons on campus since the program began. Rogue River Junior/Senior High School has seen an increase in graduation rates of 13%, an increase in attendance of 8% and 612 fewer disciplinary referrals.

At Phoenix High School, there have been 66% fewer disciplinary referrals, 47% fewer suspensions and an attendance increase of 13%.

Resolve’s other Restorative Justice school partners include Talent Middle School, Roosevelt Elementary School, Ruch Community School, Jefferson Elementary School and Central Medford High.

Response is a comprehensive high school-based program that increases awareness about suicide among high school staff, students and parents. All program components are designed to heighten sensitivity to depression and suicidal ideation, increase identification, and facilitate referral. The program also provides procedures to refer a student who may be at-risk for suicide. Components include (1) a two-hour awareness training for staff, (2) a four-hour student curriculum (spread across four class periods), and parent awareness materials. An implementation assistance manual is also included for administrators. Before implementing the awareness components, participating schools must identify key staff to serve on a suicide prevention team. Key school-based staff should include the principal or vice-principal, a school-based RESPONSE coordinator, two "suicide contacts" responsible for handling referrals, and a counselor. Each component of RESPONSE integrates extensive “in the field” experience and key evaluation findings from other school-based programs. .

Rose Circle (soon to be called ROGUE VALLEY MENTORING)

Offering mentor circles (community and school based) in a group setting as well as one-to-one mentoring for youth from age 10 to 24.

Rogue Valley Family YMCA
