Our collective mental health needs are at their greatest now. 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 needed more than ever. To support our community, we are pleased to announce that NAMIWalks, NAMI North Carolina’s largest fundraiser and awareness event of the year, will be held on Saturday, May 22, 2021.
Once again, NAMIWalks this year will be a little different than traditional Walks — while still making a lot of difference.
NAMI Walks NC 2021 will be similar to 2020’s phenomenally successful virtual event, where people (and some pets) took part in locations all over the state–and even outside of North Carolina. NAMI NC invites you to join in safely from wherever you are, participating “your way” to raise funds and awareness.
So mark your calendar, and start planning your role in the year’s key event for mental health in North Carolina. You can be one of the first participants to sign up for this event by clicking here.
