Find Help, Find Hope!

Welcome to NAMI Louisville!

 

 


Thank you to everyone who helped make our 2019 Step Forward for Mental Health walk the best one ever!!  Thank you to all our sponsors, vendors, volunteers, walkers, team leaders, Bridge 19, Snatch Fitness, the LMPD and CIT officers and city officials.

So many people stepped forward that there are countless groups and individuals to thank.

And yes, we THANK THE WEATHER for holding off the rain for all of us!!

While final numbers are being calculated, we can tell you we had well over 300 walkers this year!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RAIN OR SHINE EVENT!

The Step Forward for Mental Health Walk is a RAIN OR SHINE EVENT!  For those unwavered by the rain we will hold the walk as scheduled to begin at 10 am.  For those choosing not to walk, there will be MANY activities for you to participate in, including live music, over 25 vendors, food trucks, a raffle including such exciting prizes as Bourbon & Beyond and Petefest Tickets, electronics, original art and gift cards.  We will also have two exciting   presentations, one from the City of Louisville naming NAMI Walk day as Mental Health Awareness Day in Louisville and the annual presentation of the LMPD/CIT Officer of the Year Award!

We look forward to seeing all of you this Saturday and can’t wait to Step Forward for Mental Health together!
