ORGANIZE YOUR OWN TEAM!
Honor someone you love by creating a team of family and friends. Ask colleagues at work or members of your community to walk with you to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness. We can provide fact sheets, brochures, or fliers. Ask us for a Famous People with Mental Illness poster.
