Please join the Mental Health Association of Rockland (MHA of Rockland) and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI Rockland) on Saturday, May 19, 2018 as we walk/run together to raise awareness about mental health, celebrate recovery from mental illness and BREAK THE STIGMA! The proceeds of this event will fund our programs, provide education, create advocacy and support services for Rockland county residents living with mental health challenges and their families.
Research shows that mental illnesses are common in the United States and across the globe affecting tens of millions of people each year. Regardless of ethnicity, age, religion or economic status, mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in six U.S. adults (44.7 million in 2016) and an estimated 49.5% of adolescents age 13-18. There is hellp and hope for people living with mental illness. However, estimates suggest that only half of people with mental illnesses receive treatment. Stigma persists. As two of the leading mental health, non-profit 501(c)3 organizations in Rockland County, we work to change that. Your support can me a difference!
Experience the beauty of Rockland Lake State Park on a Spring day for an event the whole family can enjoy. There will be events for children, food, raffles, music, giveaways and a wellness area that can be enjoyed by all!
