Due to COVID-19, we had to pivot our in person NAMIWalks St. Louis to its first ever virtual walk. Hope is not canceled so NAMI St. Louis teamed up with 33 other NAMI Affiliates across the country to bring to you NAMIWalks Your Way. We would like to thank everyone for taking part in our National Day of Hope on Saturday, May 30th. Thank you to our donors, sponsors, and volunteers for making the day possible. We wouldn’t be NAMI St. Louis without each one of YOU! Because of YOU, we have raised over $170,000 and counting!! 100% of the money raised stays right here in the St. Louis region. This money will allow us to continue providing no cost mental health education, and support services. The money also allows our community resource Helpline to remain open 7 days a week from 9am – 5pm.
We closed out mental health awareness month with a HUGE presence on social media. We shared messages, stories, and videos of hope. Angela, our Director of Programs took part in the day by singing a song that has a meaning to her. Amy, Christine, Heather and Kyle, reached their fundraising goals and took pies to the face for mental health awareness. Share with us what you did to take part in our National Day of hope. Send pictures and stories to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have until July 30th to continue raising much needed funds to help us reach our goal of $200,000. We can’t do it without YOU!
We appreciate YOU!

Since that first walk here in St. Louis eighteen years ago, the annual NAMIWalks has grown to over 1,300 participants, raising over $170,000 annually to help continue our St. Louis programs.
NAMIWalks St. Louis accomplishes two very critical parts of our mission.
- By promoting the Walk and inviting others to support your walk efforts, the Walk becomes an educational tool to increase awareness in our communities and helps to remove stigma about mental illnesses.
- The funds raised through the campaign help us to continue providing NAMI educational support and advocacy programs in seven counties throughout our region: St. Louis City, St. Louis, Lincoln, St. Charles, Franklin, Warren and Jefferson Counties.
NAMIWalks St. Louis brings together thousands of individuals and supporters to celebrate mental illness recovery, to honor those who have lost their lives to mental illness and to help raise funds, combat stigma and promote awareness.
