NAMI Multnomah Movie Week Starts Friday
Friday, May 12, through Thursday, May 18
Laurelhurst Theater & Pub
2735 E. Burnside St.
See a thought-provoking movie classic while supporting NAMI Multnomah! Beginning on Friday, Laurelhurst Theater & Pub is generously donating 50 percent of box office receipts to us for an entire week's showing of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, the Oscar-winning 1975 movie filmed in Oregon. NAMI Multnomah and the May 21 NAMIWalks Northwest fundraiser will be featured in a slideshow before the movie as well as at an information table in the theater staffed by our employees and volunteers.
Tickets are only $4 at the box office. Because the theater serves beer and wine, the evening showings, at 6:30 and 9:15, will be for adults only, but 1pm matinees will be offered on Saturday and Sunday. (The movie is rated R.) Find out more

Ending the Silence Presenter Training
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.
In Our Own Voice Presenter Training
NAMI In Our Own Voice presentations change attitudes, assumptions and stereotypes by describing the reality of living with mental illness. People with mental health conditions share their powerful personal stories in a free 60- or 90-minute presentation.
