NAMI High Country and friends will be participating in the 2014 NAMIWalks in Raleigh, NC. The walk is on May 3rd at 10 am at the Dorothea Dix Campus. The bigger our team the better! We would love for Appalachian students and the Boone and surrounding community to join us in this walk to fight against mental illness stigma. NAMIWalks is celebrating its 12th anniversary, and is the most successful mental health awareness and fundraising event in America! Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity of advocacy.
