NAMIWalks Massachusetts brings together thousands of people each year to combat discrimination, raise funds, and educate the public about mental health. NAMIWalks is our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year, and supports our educational programs, support groups, helpline, and grassroots advocacy efforts.
