We’re thrilled to share that we’re sponsoring this year’s NAMIWALKs Massachusetts! The walk will take place on Saturday, May 20, 2023 at Artesani Park in Boston, MA. 

As a proud NAMIWALKs participant, we’d love to share with you what NAMIWALKs is all about:

What is NAMI?

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is a national, non-profit organization that provides advocacy, education, support, and public awareness for people living with mental illness and their loved ones in local communities. 

With more than 600 local affiliates and 49 State Organizations, NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization.

What is NAMIWALKs?

Since 2007, NAMIWAlks has gathered thousands of supporters, including individuals, families, companies, and community organizations around the country.

NAMIWALKers, and sponsors like us, are committed to achieving “Mental Health For All.” That means providing support and unconditional acceptance for all people, and for all reasons.
