#NotAlone #MentalHealthForAll #MIDayOfHopewithNAMI
Saturday, May 30 marks Mental Health For All: A National Day of Hope. NAMIWalks across the country are uniting during this day as a symbol of solidarity in our mission to raise awareness for mental health. NAMI Michigan is using this special date to launch our 18th annual NAMIWalks season.
Thousands of supporters of all ages participate in NAMIWalks to raise awareness for mental health and spread the word that mental health matters, treatment works, recovery is possible. The event features local mental health information and resources from our vendors, activities from our local sponsors, healthy snacks and refreshments, special guest speakers, face painting tables, live entertainment, prize giveaways, merch tables, balloon artists, music from DJ Ken Washington – and a 5K walk with a beautiful view of the Detroit River.
Michigan’s 2020 NAMIWalks events will take place on the following dates and locations
