[UPDATE: After calculating some gifts that were not originally included in the total because they were in person gifts that had to be verified ... the grand total is now over $92,000. What a difference this will make in our ability to continue to offer expansive, quality mental health programming in 2019!]

NAMI Fox Valley's work is possible because of the passion and dedication of our program participants, members, volunteers, and supporters. And, as we kicked off Mental Illness Awareness Week with NAMIWalks Fox Valley 2018, the strength of the NAMI FV community was abundantly clear.

What a sight it was to see more than 350 walkers stream over the Highway 41 pedestrian bridge as we began the Walk. What an inspiration it was to have the opportunity to talk with many fellow walkers and to share stories about what led us to walk in support of mental health. And, to top it all off, what a joy it was to discover that you blew the roof off our fundraising goal, raising over $86,000 (and still counting!) in support of NAMI Fox Valley's mental health programs!

Thank you to everyone who was involved in the walk. You are mental health heroes!

Lady Gaga and Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of the World Health Organization, coauthored a powerful op-ed last week calling for increased efforts to break down mental health stigma and promote treatment and recovery.

As they state in the article: "We can all help to build communities that understand, respect and prioritize mental wellness. We can all learn how to offer support to loved ones going through a difficult time. And we can all be a part of a new movement – including people who have faced mental illness themselves – to call on governments and industry to put mental health at the top of their agendas."
