Teamwork can be so important. We are so excited that many NAMI NC affiliates, members, and friends throughout North Carolina are participating in NAMIWalks Your Way NC on May 22. We highly encourage your participation! NAMIWalks is NAMI North Carolina’s largest fundraiser and awareness event of the year, and is critical to support mental health in our state.

While this is a virtual event and you are welcome to participate as an individual, you can also join a Team! Our affiliates welcome you to join other members of their affiliate in this effort to build mental health resources and awareness. Close to fifty percent of the funds raised by these teams will directly benefit the local affiliate efforts.

Whether as an individual, Team member or donor, you are needed this year more than ever. Recent surveys have shown that one in three U.S. adults reported experiencing depression or anxiety since the pandemic began.

Educating the public about mental health and delivering NAMI’s programs and advocacy are vital to our public health. While NAMIWalks United Day of Hope for this virtual event is not until Saturday, May 22nd, efforts for this important campaign are already underway. More information on this important event is available here. Won’t you take the first step and register today?
