NAMI Vermont’s MINDWalk is an annual event that raises money for free mental health programs all over the state.

Wish to be a Sponsor for the 2019 MINDWalk?

This walking event is NAMI Vermont’s biggest fundraising and outreach campaign of the year. With the help of our sponsors, we were able to raise over $39,000 to help us continue to provide free programs, classes, workshops and services to our community.

Please consider partnering with us for our 2019 MINDWalk at one of our sponsor levels.

You can download a Sponsor Brochure and Form here. 

As a walk sponsor, your organization will receive extensive recognition for your support, recognition that will show your employees, customers and the community that you are committed to improving the lives of people with mental illness.

Funds from our walkathon support the following:

  • 17 support groups throughout the state
  • Educational trainings that include: 12-week intensive courses, one-day workshops, presentations and provider classes that focus on mental health recovery, management, treatment, and symptoms.
  • Advocacy to ensure a voice for peers and family members at the local, state and federal level to protect funding and ensure access to the right care at the right time in the right setting.
  • In Our Own Voice – an educational program in which two trained speakers share their compelling personal stories of living with mental illness and achieving recovery.

M.I.N.D. stands for Mental Illness Non-Discrimination. NAMI Vermont stands for families and individuals who need mental health care because it is health care, like any other kind of health care. We stand against mental health stigma in public policy, employment, and housing. We stand for all those who have faced hardship, crisis, death and loss at the hands of mental illness.

We stand (and we walk) for the hope of recovery and the courage of those to continue to strive for productive and meaningful lives with mental illness every day.

Please join us in giving a voice to the one in five members of the Vermont community that live with mental illness.
