1 in 5 children and 1 in 4 adults live with a mental health condition. It may be someone you know and love. It may be you. NAMI of PA, Bucks County works to better the lives of those living with mental illnesses, and helps them earn the reputation and good community standing they deserve. We do this through education, advocacy, and support, but we can not do this alone.

Your participation, contributions, and sponsorships provide us with the means necessary to fund these efforts for a full year. Funds raised will be used to support our Ending the Silence program which delivers mental health education to middle and high school students in the Bucks County school system. This program effectively ends the silence and stigma surrounding mental illness and lets students know that it's okay to ask for help when needed.

Gather your friends, family, and coworkers, and join us for the National Alliance on Mental Illness of PA, Bucks County Chapter Stride for Mental Health Awareness in beautiful Fonthill Park. Support our mission while enjoying a stigma-free walk with your friends and neighbors. Assisting the community has never been so easy or fun. Set your own personal goal and show your commitment to our cause. ALL ARE WELCOME!

Our fundraising goal: $50,000
