Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Green Light Gala Committee was forced to make the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Gala that was scheduled for Saturday, November 14. They did not make this decision lightly. Not only have we made amazing memories at our past two Galas, but NAMI Keystone PA relies on the funds raised to support the programs we offer throughout the entire year at no cost to participants.

In lieu of the Gala, we hope you will consider lending your support to this fall’s annual NAMIWalks Keystone PA, which will take place virtually on Saturday, Oct. 10.

Normally, thousands of people including individuals in recovery, families, friends, advocates, and mental health professionals would gather at Monroeville Community Park to walk together with a unified mission: fight mental illness stigma and raise awareness that treatment works and recovery is possible.

But this year, NAMI Keystone PA is hosting NAMIWalks Your Way, a virtual walk that gives supporters the opportunity to choose how and where they want to celebrate on Oct. 10. We hope you will join us by creating a team of your own, joining a team, making a donation, or becoming a sponsor. You can get started by clicking a button below.

During the pandemic, the community need for services has increased. The worry and stress related to coronavirus has had a negative impact on mental health. In response to this demand, NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania and affiliates across the state have increased the number of support groups being offered by moving them online. They are also more accessible. Now, someone in Pittsburgh can participate in a support group anywhere across the state. NAMI Keystone PA is also offering popular education programs like NAMI Family-to-Family and NAMI Peer-to-Peer virtually so people can still connect with others and learn from people who have been in their shoes.

Your support of NAMIWalks will go a long way. Like the Gala, funds raised for the Walk support the programs that NAMI Keystone PA offers throughout the year at no cost to participants.

NAMI Keystone PA needs your support now more than ever.  Please consider making a donation to NAMIWalks Keystone PA today.
