This will be the 12th NAMIWalk in Minnesota! We invite you to take part in one of the largest NAMIWalks in the country and the largest mental health awareness event in the state. It is an incredibly inspiring event to see so many people come out to raise awareness about mental illnesses. Most of the mental health and health care organizations participate in the walk demonstrating their support for this issue and for NAMI Minnesota.

The walk is about recovery, resiliency and hope.  It is about enjoying a beautiful fall day with family, friends and co-workers.  It’s about changing the way our community views mental illness. It’s about creating a movement. It’s about showing people that you will support them on this journey – no one needs to walk alone. Helen Keller said that “Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.”

NAMIWalks supports many of the programs provided by NAMI Minnesota including the helpline, public policy advocacy, education programs for parents of children and adults, peer led support groups, grassroots organizing and much more. Last year NAMI Minnesota reached over 28,000 people through our education classes and presentations, including over 6,300 through suicide prevention classes and over 9,600 teens through our Ending the Silence program. In all, over 180,000 people were served through all of our programs. The need for NAMI’s programs are great – and the walk makes these programs possible.

We hope you will join us on September 22ndPlease register today. Thanks to you it is one of the largest walks in the country!  We want this year to be even better than last year.
