There are multiple ways you can make a difference with NAMIWalks: as a sponsor, committee member, team captain, team member, individual walker, or volunteer!
However you participate in NAMIWalks, you will be joining NAMI's movement to raise awareness of mental illness and raise funds for our mission to help individuals and families right here in our region.

Why NAMIWalks NH Matters
Last year, NAMI New Hampshire provided education, support and advocacy to more than 29,000 Granite Staters affected by mental illness and suicide. Every year, mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in 5 adults and children across the United States.
NAMIWalks NH is the Granite State's largest mental health and suicide prevention event, last year bringing together 2,000+ participants to celebrate mental illness recovery, to honor those who have lost their lives to mental illness and to help raise funds, #crushstigma and promote awareness.
NAMI New Hampshire is a grassroots organization working to improve the lives of all people affected by mental illness and suicide through support, education and advocacy .
