NAMIWalk raises over $205,000

NAMIWalkers with Mariner Moose walked
to raise awareness for mental health in Kirkland
NAMI Eastside wants to thank all of our sponsors and you, for contributing your time, energy, and support to this year’s NAMIWalk. Eastside Donations are still coming in but so far total more than $205,000. The estimate of attendees for the Walk is between 850 – 1000. Regardless of how many people attended or what the final amount turns out to be, I consider the Walk a success. Thank you for helping us continue our important work. We truly wouldn’t be here without you. I will post additional information as I receive it.

NAMI Eastside is the East King County, WA chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). Our mission is to improve the quality of life of those persons affected by acute and chronic mental illness through support, education and advocacy.
Our members include families, friends, and people with mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder (manic depression), major depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, general anxiety disorder, ADHD, and others.
We sponsor free support groups and educational programs, and we advocate for improvements to our mental health delivery system in terms of access to care, standards of care, continuity of care, recovery, housing and rehabilitation.
