National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Walk

NAMI Gainesville’s annual mental health and suicide prevention awareness walk will be held Saturday, Oct. 13, at Depot Park. Registration opens at 8 a.m., and the walk begins at 9:30 a.m. Your involvement as a walker, sponsor or donor sends the message that our community values mental health and suicide awareness. Event proceeds will provide education outreach, classes, support groups and advocacy for individuals who have been affected by mental illness and their families.

Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses, Beau the Therapy Dog and Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs Inc. will be joining the fun this year! Area non-profits and organizations will have tents set up, and AnARTists community group will be offering face painting. There will be live music during registration as well. This is a family friendly event!
