The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) San Diego, a non-profit organization provides education, support services and advocacy to improve the quality of lives of everyone affected by mental illnesses.
One in five people will be treated for a biological brain disorder at some point in life. NAMI Walks for the Mind of America, the annual NAMI San Diego County fundraiser, is a big part of the solution. Financial support that NAMI receives from the Walk is used for its programs that increase mental health recovery and reduce mental illness stigma.
You can walk as an individual, join an existing team or form your own team (highly recommended for groups like families, co-workers, schoolmates) and show your NAMI spirit by raising money as a group and even creating team T-shirts.
