We've reimagined NAMIWalks Chicago for the world we're living in, and it's everything you've ever walked for, and more.

The world may look a little different this year, but one thing is certain. The need to raise awareness and funds for mental health services in Chicago, to share hope and build community, is greater than ever.

NAMI Chicago is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Chicago that provides mental health education, support and advocacy. We are one of the largest and most active affiliates of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). We work tirelessly, seven days a week, to create a world that prioritizes mental wellness, and to bridge people into the care and support they deserve to live thriving lives of recovery. 

Your fundraising and advocacy allows NAMI Chicago to reach over 20,000 people across Chicago and Illinois each year with free mental health programming, including:

(1) Our free Helpline, open 71 hours a week at 833-626-4244
(2) Our youth education programs, which reach about 10,000 kids and families each year
(3) Peer support groups for individuals and families, operating virtually in 2020
(4) Advocacy to fight pervasive gaps, disinvestment and inequity in the mental health system
