NAMI Walkathon, May 14, 2005

Spring greetings, LLNE members —

There is a wonderful opportunity to join a walkathon on May 14, 2005, for the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (or NAMI).

This walkathon —

raises public awareness about mental illness and the realities of the lives of individuals and families living with these disorders,

fights stigma and negative stereotypes associated with mental illness,

raises funds to provide new resources and programs for state and affiliate programs,

increases NAMI membership,

and provides outreach to new and culturally diverse populations affected by mental illness.

NAMI is a wonderful organization that helps individuals and families throughout the country, including right here in New England. To learn more, or to sign up to pledge or to walk with the LLNE team, go to

If you have any questions please contact me, Ginny McVarish, at or 617-495-2422.

And enjoy the spring!
