NAMI in Motion

What is NAMI in Motion?

NAMI Contra Costa has been holding NAMI in Motion annually for the past few years. A short walk-a-thon, it is also a community event where other mental health and health oriented organizations have booths to enlighten the community about resources available. Generally held in a park setting, it is also a time for families to get out and enjoy the warm, summer day.

Why do we hold NAMI In Motion?

All NAMI groups and services are free, and it is our goal to create greater awareness around mental illness and allow community members to utilize our programs. From our classes like Family to Family and Basics to peer-led groups like Connections, NAMI Contra Costa strives to ensure that the community will always have a voice for the mentally ill.
