NAMI Metropolitan Baltimore is honored to be a part of NAMIWalks, the nation’s largest and most successful mental health awareness and fundraising event. As the local affiliate for Baltimore City and Baltimore County, we are dedicated to improving the lives of the 1 in 5 individuals and their families living with a mental health condition. In Baltimore, 284,000 people are living with a mental health condition – that’s the equivalent of 4 Ravens Stadiums! Yet, many people experience an 11 year delay before seeking treatment due to stigma.
At a time when 1 in 3 young adults are experiencing anxiety or depression, we’re committed to creating a culture that embraces and supports mental health by providing quality peer-based support, education, and advocacy programs. Join the movement and start supporting our free mental health programs and local community now!
