NAMIWalks 2020

#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.

Where The Funds Go

NAMIWalks funds our community that we offer throughout the year at no cost to participants. With a gift to NAMIWalks, you have the power to make the following programs and resources possible:

  • Mental health awareness education, presentations, and resources in local schools, workplaces, places of worship and the community.
  • Support groups that provide a crucial network for individuals living with mental illness and their loved ones.
  • Information and NAMI HelpLine.

We Need YOU!

On May 30, we’re asking all former and future team captains, walkers, and supporters to shift into NAMIWalks mode. This fundraising season will be like none we’ve ever experienced, so we’re doing something we’ve never done before by designating one specific date as LAUNCH DAY!

What YOU Can Do On May 30!

Register A Walk Team – Become a leader in the NAMIWalks movement by having your own Walk team. There is no fee to register as a team captain. Log on to to get started. Then, email, text, and message your family, friends, and colleagues to join you on your mission.

Join a Walk Team – Did your friend, co-worker, or neighbor create a NAMIWalks team that you’d like to join? Signing up is easy! Log onto, click on their team name, and look for the “Join Our Team” button. There is no fee to register.

Make a Donation – Maybe you can’t make it on August 29th, or maybe you live out of town. You can still make a difference by making a donation. You can show your support for NAMIWalks Michigan on the homepage:
