This is our time, our opportunity to celebrate the successes of every Michigan citizen living with, caring for, or providing services to someone living with mental illness. This is our opportunity to raise awareness in our communities, to show that mental illness is a serious issue that calls for and deserves serious attention. This is our opportunity to unite, to let our legislators know that we are watching who supports mental health legislation, not only in words, but in actions, and remind them that we vote for those who vote for us. This is our opportunity to demonstrate the strong collaboration between advocates and the many agencies, organizations and individuals who provide care to our family members and friends living with mental illness. This is our time to celebrate those we have lost, but live on through our efforts. This is our time to send the message "RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE!"
We are excited to participate in the 13th annual NAMIWalks Michigan on Saturday, September 10th at Davenport University in Grand Rapids. We invite all West Michigan area citizens, businesses, places of worship and schools to join us to raise mental health awareness. NAMIWalks brings together families, individuals, co-workers and businesses to help raise funds, combat stigma and promote awareness. NAMIWalks is the nation's largest and most successful mental health awareness and fundraising event. Public display of support for people with mental health challenges helps to change how Americans view mental illness. Please join us as we improve lives and our communities one step at a time. Participation in this event is FREE, however, we encourage donations from family members, friends, co-workers and business associates.
