Thank you for your support!

Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. During May, NAMI joins the national movement to raise awareness about mental health. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.

Walk with NAMI in 2023

The power of our mission is being felt as never before. The achievement of “Mental Health for All” has never felt this critical yet closer to being realized.

It’s not how far we walk at NAMIWalks Kern County on October 7 at Yokuts Park, but how far we’ve come to make our milestones count. With your support and high spirits, we intend to make an unprecedented impact on mental health in our community.  

NAMIWalks 2023 represents a powerful chance to leave a significant mark on the local mental health landscape.   

Whether you’re a previous participant or a new voice waiting to be heard, we’re pretty sure you’ll find the festivities inspired and inspiring.

This year, changing the world begins at Yokuts Park.

See you there!

Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome.

Family support groups are so important because you learn from each other what works and what doesn’t. It’s nice to be around others who truly understand your struggles.
