National Alliance of Mental Illness of El Paso to Hold NAMIWalks Kick-Off Breakfast July 19

The National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) of El Paso will be kicking off its annual mental health walk – NAMIWalks El Paso – via an informational breakfast on July 19th at 8 a.m.

The event will be held at Emergence Health Network headquarters, located at 201 East Main Street in El Paso.

While NAMIWalks is a nationwide event with over 80 walks across the nation throughout the year, this year marks the 8th year of the Walk here in El Paso.

Officials with NAMIWalks El Paso say, “The public, active display of support for those living with mental health conditions is one important way we are changing how El Paso’s view people living with a mental health condition.”

“With the constant conversations in our lives that we have about individuals who have taken their own lives or are struggling, NAMIWalks El Paso hopes to spread a message of hope for those who fear seeking help,” officials added.

While the registration is free for the event, participants are encouraged to raise funds.

All the funds raised from NAMIWalks El Paso stays in the El Paso community and help continue NAMI El Paso’s mission to provide advocacy, public awareness, support and education so that all individuals living with mental health conditions and their families can build better lives.

All of NAMI El Paso’s educational classes and support groups are available at no cost to those who need them. More information about the programs and support that NAMI El Paso offers, is available via the NAMI website.

To register or donate to NAMIWalks El Paso, visit namiwalks.org/elpaso  The walk is scheduled for September 22nd.
