The NAMIWalk is a two mile walk, that will be held in every Spring. In past years it has been held at Washburn University in Topeka, where concerned citizens gathered from across the entire state of Kansas.

The goal of the Walk is to generate financial support for NAMI’s work and to raise awareness about mental illness and the number of families who are affected. NAMIWalk will provide funding to support the real possibilities for recovery from mental illness. The proceeds from the Walk will be used by NAMI to:

  • Provide support to persons with serious brain disorders and their families
  • Educate families, patients, and the public to help eliminate the pervasive stigma surrounding severe mental illness
  • Advocate for improved opportunities for housing, rehabilitation and meaningful jobs
  • Support research into the causes, systems, and treatments of brain disorders

What Is Hearts & Minds?

The NAMI Hearts & Minds program is an online, interactive, educational initiative promoting the idea of wellness in both mind and body. Wellness is an ongoing process of learning how to make choices that support a more successful, healthy life.

Engaging in a wellness effort can make a huge difference in the quality of your life. One study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, showed that taking the wellness approach can result in a 17 percent decline in total medical visits and a 35 percent decline in medical visits for minor illnesses.

Wellness is about the individual; you can decide what parts of your life you would like to change and you can determine your own success.
