The Walk for Mental Health Awareness - Houston

Who Are We:

Established in 2010 as the Walk to Washington, DC for Depression Awareness to later transforming into the Walk for Mental Health Awareness - Houston in 2011, the Walk Houston is a full voluntary run organization with the sole purpose of raising mental health awareness and funding for local non-profit agencies. We now have our event held during National Mental Health Week in October in Houston Texas.

Our Mission Statement:

The Walk for Mental Health Awareness – Houston is a community based event that helps raise awareness and funding for Greater Houston area non-profit agencies and programs that provide mental health services; creating an environment for our positive public dialog.

Our Vision Statement:

For those struggling under the weight of depression or a mental illness, past failures, or harmful relationships, every-day-living can feel like a death sentence. The physical, mental and emotional suffering steals the heart out of life and if left untreated, will ultimately destroy them. There is help and there is hope, but you can only find this by reaching outside of yourself. The Walk for Mental Health Awareness – Houston is a celebration of the hope of life after mental illness and a call to action by people in our community.
