More Info

In its 12th year, NAMIWalks Chicago is a 5k walk hosted by the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Chicago. Thousands of participants will come together to create awareness, raise funds for NAMI Chicago and its partner affiliates, and send a message that stigma around mental illness can take a hike.

Free to the community, this event features live music, giveaways, refreshments, face painters, a bounce castle, and more. Check out for more information.

One in four Chicago adults experiences mental illness in a given year. Depression, anxiety, eating disorders, attention deficit, and many other serious illnesses are a part of everyday life in our schools, communities and homes. Suicide can be a consequence of untreated or misdiagnosed mental illness. Mental illness does not discriminate; it touches everyone.

Our generous sponsors include Alkermes, Takeda Lundbeck, Lutheran Social Services of Illinois, Barton Management, Inc., Chicago IV Solutions, MADO Healthcare, Encore Event Technologies, Sunovion, and Timberline Knolls.
