year?

As you know, advocacy is more vital than ever and NAMI’s FREE programs
and services are a critical part of the response to the current situation.

To help fund our services during these important times, on October 10th, our
NAMI family will be joined by San Mateo County residents, local
businesses and organizations for our very own virtual NAMIWalks San
Mateo County
to raise $40,000.
