NAMI Walk

Mental health is a growing issue and Willowglen Academy – Wisconsin, along with many other Milwaukeeans, hit the pavement for the NAMI Walk in the month of May to raise awareness and money for the cause.

 

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) walks have been a huge success and have brought a lot of positive attention to a great cause. Every year staff, consumers, family members and friends join in for a wonderful Willowglen Academy - Wisconsin group picture before the walk.

 

Rain or shine, Willowglen Academy – Wisconsin is always prepared to walk a 5k in Milwaukee’s indecisive weather! The walk begins at the Willowglen Academy - Wisconsin sponsored starting line. The event is finished off with live bands, free food, and games for children.  With each step it's a foot in the right direction of helping treat mental disorders.

 

Through NAMIWalks public display of support for people with mental health challenges, we are changing how Americans view mental illness. Please join us next year and the years to follow as we improve lives and our communities one step at a time.
