Thank you for checking out my fundraising page. Below is the NAMI official fundraising story, but, I wanted to add my own personal touch as well. The reason I choose to walk with NAMI is because I want to speak for those people who feel they can't speak up for themselves. I work in the mental health field as a professional counselor and everyday I see how the stigma and shame affects my clients as well as some of my closest friends. There is no shame in struggling with your mental health; Mental wellness is a life long journey with many different turns and unexpected surprises along the way. Lets support one another instead of judge each other. Let's fight so that we can eliminate Stigma from Mental Illness and become STIGMA FREE!
I am a NAMIWalks hero! I am walking with NAMI because the work they do is very important to me. NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans impacted by mental illness.
Did you know that :
NAMI provides support, education, and advocacy to hundreds of thousands of families, individuals, educators, mental health service providers, and law enforcement professionals each year. NAMIWalks helps us continue to provide these programs at no cost to the community
Donating to NAMI through my page is easy, fast and secure. Your donation will make a difference and help people and families affected by mental illness right here in our region.
