Walk with NAMI Southeast WI in 2023
Take a stand, and a WALK, for "Mental Health for All".
We're all in this together, and together will walk for mental health awareness and support.
We all must face our challenges one step at a time. Join NAMIWalks Southeast Wisconsin on October 7 at Milwaukee County Zoo, and make those steps matter for mental health in our community.
NAMIWalks 2023 represents a powerful chance to publicly declare your commitment to mental health awareness, education, support, and for ending the stigma. The health of our families, neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools depends on a community of care, and you are part of this supportive network.
Whether you're a previous participant or a new voice waiting to be heard, we want you know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. This is a community that cares.
8-9:30AM - Live Music with Malik Johnson (aka 99TheProducer), face-painting with ArtWorks for Milwaukee, book signing with Meg Kissinger, vendors and resources, choose a ribbon to tie onto our community banner

Wheelchairs and strollers are welcome! Unfortunately, the Zoo does not allow dogs to attend (but hopefully you will get your fill of cute animals for the day), nor do they allow any balloons. For the safety of the Zoo animals, please do not bring balloons to the event.
