SEE EVENT DETAILS
Join 3,000 volunteers, community groups, corporate employees, families and people of all ages from around the Bay Area in Golden Gate Park's Lindley Meadow for the 10th Annual 5K NAMIWalk San Francisco Bay Area on May 31st. Help raise awareness about NAMI's free programs and services and stomp out the stigma associated with mental illness one step at a time.

Registration for walkers is free thanks to corporate and sponsor donations. Funds raised directly benefit nine NAMI affiliates in Alameda County, Alameda County South, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Solano counties who come together to create this annual FUNdraiser.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. NAMIWalks will be held in over 80 communities nationwide during May -- National Mental Health Month, established in 1949.

Dr. Francis J. Harvey, 19th Secretary of the U.S. Army (November 19, 2004 – March 9, 2007), and Col. William E. Peacock, USMCR (Ret), Chairman, Wine Country Marines, serve as this year’s NAMIWalk SF Bay Area Veterans Co-chairs. NAMI supports veterans and active duty personnel through its online Veterans and Military Resource Center and locally through family support groups for family members of service personnel dealing with PTSD and mental health issues.

Funds raised help to underwrite the free mental health programs of the nine participating Bay Area NAMI affiliates most needed in their areas. Programs include: Family to Family, a multi-week support and education course for family members of people with mental illness, In Our Own Voice, an anti-stigma speaker’s bureau, Parents and Teachers as Allies, an in-service program helping school professionals better understand the early warning signs of mental illnesses in children, partnerships with multi-cultural agencies reaching out with classes and education materials in Spanish and Chinese. NAMI also advocates politically for improved public policies addressing the needs of those with mental illness and their families on national and regional levels.
