I am forming Team “Walk this Way” and walking with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) because the work they do is very important to me. Our family has been affected by mental illness, and the resources that NAMI provided were supportive and life changing. 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.
FACT: Each year, approximately 44 million American adults will experience a serious mental health condition. Less than half will seek treatment due to stigma and discrimination.
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. If you prefer to send me a check, just let me know.
Thank you for supporting my team and the critically important work of NAMI!
