Help Give Those with Mental Illness a Voice in the Community
About 448,000 adults and 129,000 children live with mental illness in Pennsylvania. That’s according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
You can help give them a voice by taking part in the 7th annual NAMI Walk, Sunday, October 13th, 2013, on the Southside. OVGH is a proud sponsor of the event. The walk follows Mental Illness Awareness Week, October 6th-12th.
