Join us for A United Day of Hope
For the second year in a row, NAMIWalks will be a little different — while makinga lotof difference. It’s going to be “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 your help, we are pleased to present NAMIWalks Your Way on Saturday, May 22, 2021,
