We understand that there a many important awareness walks throughout the world and we want to stress that mental illnesses are serious neurological brain disorders that deserve our attention. Mental illness can affect anyone regardless of race, income/social status, age or beliefs. We are proud to announce that partnering with local agencies, law enforcement, first responders and businesses has helped increase public awareness.
