Join us for a fun and worthwhile event! The Walk is a fun day for the community including the general public, people in recovery from mental health and/or substance use disorders and their family members, providers, professionals and organizations. Community resources and educational information will be shared. We also fight the stigma associated with behavioral health issues that can often prevent people from seeking treatment.
