This will be the 12th NAMIWalk in Minnesota! We invite you to take part in one of the largest NAMIWalks in the country and the largest mental health awareness event in the state. It is an incredibly inspiring event to see so many people come out to raise awareness about mental illnesses. Most of the mental health and health care organizations participate in the walk demonstrating their support for this issue and for NAMI Minnesota.

The walk is about recovery, resiliency and hope.  It is about enjoying a beautiful fall day with family, friends and co-workers.  It’s about changing the way our community views mental illness. It’s about creating a movement. It’s about showing people that you will support them on this journey – no one needs to walk alone. Helen Keller said that “Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.”
