NAMIWalks Virginia brings together families, friends, and communities to raise awareness for mental health and crucial funds which enable NAMI Virginia and our local NAMI affiliates to provide truly transformational education programs and support groups to youth, families, and adults free of cost. NAMIWalks is a celebration of recovery. 


Why people walk

  • ​We're all a team - here to support and encourage each other along the way!

  • NAMI brings families together. This is the 8th year my sister has walked with me.

  • I know recovery is possible, and because I care about your health

  • So it's OK to ask to help

  • To end stigma. My mental illness doesn't define me!

  • For my mom. Because mental illness doesn't mean she's worthless.

  • For my recovery

  • For my other half

  • In memory of grandma

  • To kick Depression's butt
