Funds raised through NAMIWalks allow NAMIWalks Greater Cleveland to provide free resources such as education, support, and referrals to people affected by mental illness. These resources, along with medical protocols, allow both peers and their family members to channel their inner superpowers. With education, support, and information, they begin to understand diagnoses and treatments, learn new communication skills, identify community resources, and realize they are not alone. For many, this is the first step on their path to gain resilience, gather strength, and summon the courage to overcome what they once perceived as insurmountable obstacles.
