Every year thousands of supporters of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) come together to walk in more than 85 cities throughout the United States. The objective of the walk is to raise both funds and awareness for various mental illnesses and to focus on the need for improved treatment, healthcare and facilities for those suffering.
While funds raised through the NAMIWalks are critically important, the NAMIWalks also expands our visibility and presence in the community and helps grow and strengthen our community partnerships.
If you have ever taken our Family-to-Family or Peer-to-Peer; heard an In Our Own Voice presentation; encountered a police officer trained in Crisis Intervention or attended one of our many drop-in support groups then please support our walk! Involve your friends and family and Walk with us on October 10, 2020.
Sign up to be a virtual walker and ask your friends and family to support you with a donation: When you lace up your sneakers and walk with NAMI, you are ensuring that we are there to help when someone needs us most.
