Join NamiWalks in support of mental health

Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in May

On the morning of Saturday, May 13, 2017, join the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Greater Toledo for NAMIWalks, to be held at the University of Toledo, Health Education Center, 2801 W. Bancroft St. Registration begins at 8:30.

 

This annual event, themed “Stigma Free and Join the Movement,” is an opportunity to help raise funds for NAMI of Greater Toledo while doing your part to bust the stigma of mental illness. Face painting, a bouncy house, a health-and-wellness tent with free screenings, giveaways, raffles, prizes, and free VITOS pizza are just part of the fun!

Located in Toledo, Ohio, NAMI Greater Toledo and its dedicated volunteers work together to raise awareness and provide essential education, advocacy, and support group programs for people in our community living with mental illness and their loved ones. NAMI Greater Toledo is a nonprofit, grassroots organization that addresses the mental health needs of our community, replaces stigma with understanding, and helps thousands of families and individuals each year.

Do you have a loved one who is living with or lived with the challenges of mental illness? You may recognize your loved one by forming a team and raising funds to support NAMI in continuing to provide free support and awareness to those whose lives are affected by mental illness.

Additionally, there are numerous ways corporations and organizations can partner with NAMIWalks to help build better lives for families and individuals in the Greater Toledo area who are affected by mental illness.
