Become a NAMIWalks Hero. Join our team for the 2019 NAMIWalks event! We are walking to raise awareness of mental illness and raise funds for the important work of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
Please JOIN OUR TEAM and walk with us, or support our team by making a donation to a team member listed on our ROSTER. Donations on this page are fast, secure and easy.
All funds raised directly support the mission of NAMI to provide support, education, and advocacy to individuals and families right here in our community.
Your support means a lot to me, our team, and the 43.8 million Americans who experience mental illness in a given year.
Mental Illness is very near and dear my heart. I was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder 8 years ago after my daughter’s were born. I had bipolar for many years before but i was never diagnosed, I never went for help and I suffered in silence.
My hope is that by spreading my story, and using my voice for other who do not feel comfortable using their own I will be one of many who will “end the stigma.” No one needs to suffer in silence, No one needs to feel alone. We are strong, We are brave and We are many. We are true warriors facing our truths everyday and fighting the most important battles of our lives, with our own minds.
So walk with me , or if you can’t walk with me donate for a great cause to help others seek the help they need.
NAMI was a great support for my husband when I was at my lowest point. They helped him learn my illness, and learn how to help me. He still uses these lessons everyday and without his constant love and support I don’t think I would be here today.
