Find Help, Find Hope!

NAMIWalks North Georgia

NAMIWalks North Georgia is a family affair and it is not too late to get started! We are so excited to see all our NAMIWalks North Georgia walkers at Brenau University on Saturday, October 20 as we all come together and raise awareness of mental health one step at a time! We will be taking our #StigmaFree message to the streets of Gainesville – you don’t want to miss it!

Every journey begins with that first step. Through NAMIWalks’ public, active display of support for people affected by mental illness, we are changing our communities and ensuring that help and hope are available for those in need.
