Welcome to my NAMIWalks page... this is my 7th consecutive year participating!!! I walk & raise funds because NAMI and the work they do are very important to me. NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to educating, advocating, supporting, and building better lives for the millions of Americans impacted by mental illness. Not only am I a mental health advocate & speaker (watch video above) and NAMI member, I am someone who has benefited from NAMI's free education programs & services. Like NAMI, my goal is to raise mental health awareness and eradicate stigma. Please consider donating to the cause... your donation, no matter how big or small, will make a difference in the lives of the millions of individuals and families who are affected by mental illness in a given year.
