Access to mental health treatment continues to be a major healthcare need in the Roanoke Valley. Without treatment, many of the 22.1% of adults who experience mental illness will go without care until their illnesses result in a crisis.
Why Walk for Mental Health? We ask you to help us raise funds to support our:
- Mental Health Free Clinic for uninsured adults
- Forgotten Victims program for children who have witnessed domestic violence
- Basics education and support for parents of children with mental illnesses or behavior problems; and
- Advocacy Efforts to improve access to mental health care in our community
All funds raised are tax-deductible and will benefit the children and adults served by programs of Mental Health America of Roanoke Valley.
