It was a chilly day, but there were many warm smiles on everyone who gathered together on September 30 in City Hall Park, Burlington, to stomp out the stigma surrounding mental illness.
NAMI Vermont’s MINDWalk is an annual event that raises money for free mental health programs all over the state. For over a decade, NAMI’s Walks have been the biggest stigma stomping party in Vermont, giving individuals, family members and the community a voice on mental illness and its many challenges.
There is still time to give!
Thanks to all of our donors, sponsors, and Walkers, we are currently at 86% of our 2018 goal, with $34,771 raised. We are just over $5,700 away from making our goal. The good news is that there is still time to donate to our event or to one of our teams!
The MINDWalk fundraising site is still open and will remain so for another month! Just click on the green button to make a donation:
You can also opt to send in a check or cash to be counted towards our event. Stop by our office or mail to NAMI Vermont, 600 Blair Park Road, Suite 301, Williston, VT 05495 and make sure to mark that this is for the MINDWalk 2018 event.
Funds from our walkathon support the following:
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.
