Every year, thousands of concerned citizens in over 85 communities across the nation walk together to raise money and awareness to ensure vital, free NAMI programs and services are available to provide help and hope to those in need.
Through NAMIWalks’ public, active display of support for people affected by mental illness, we are changing our communities and ensuring that help and hope are available for those in need.
In May of 2021, for the second year in a row, NAMIWalks was a little different — while making a lot of difference. It was to “your way,” just like 2020’s phenomenally successful events — as we prove our resilience by stretching our limits anew and making the event our own.
Our collective mental health needs are at their greatest now. One in three U.S. adults reported experiencing depression or anxiety since the pandemic began. NAMI’s programs and advocacy are needed more than ever, and with help from volunteers, mental health advocates, and sponsors, we were able to raise over $66,000 at NAMIWalks Your Way 2021!
Stay tuned for NAMIWalks Your Way 2022! Hope to see you there!
