The NAMI Scranton & Northeast Region
Walk for Mental Health Awareness was supposed to be held on Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 on the Courthouse Square in Scranton. For over 20 years NAMI has used this event to kickoff a month of community wide awareness activities. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, for the first time in 22 years, this year's Walk will not be held.
But we know that the Hope, Awareness, and Support NAMI has always provided is just as important now as ever before. And we want you to know that, although we are separate now, YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
We will continue to hold activities throughout the month of May, activities that we can all participate in, separate but together.
