Walking to Help Others: CSCR Goes the Distance


NAMI National Alliance on Mental IllnessOn Sunday, October 2nd, 2016 the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) held their 14th Anniversary National Alliance on Mental Illness walk. Every year NAMI holds this event to help raise awareness on mental illness and to support people with mental health challenges through fundraising. Graduate students in the Civil Society and Community Research (CSCR) program in the School of Human Ecology came together to form a walking team to do their part to help raise awareness on mental illness. The 5K walk took place at Olin-Turville Park in Madison from 10:30am-Noon. The School of Human Ecology walking team also helped raise more than $500 that will be used towards local mental health programs, including free family education classes and support groups for individuals and families affected by serious mental illnesses.

The School of Human Ecology CSCR graduate students would like to thank Dean Shim and faculty for their support in making this year’s NAMI Walk a success!
