NAMI PA, Main Line and Independence Blue Cross invite the community to find help/find hope at their fall mental health information fair and 5k Walk.
Main Line NAMI on the Move – Stepping out for Mental Health Awareness will take place on Saturday, October 13, beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Saint Mary’s Episcopal Church, 36 Ardmore Avenue, Ardmore. This free, family-friendly community event will feature welcoming remarks from Dr. Mike Cirigliano, medical correspondent for the Fox 29 News program “Good Day Philadelphia,” a mental health resources fair, and a 5k walk (with1k option) through downtown Ardmore. Refreshments are included.
A highlight of the event will be a brief presentation by Jordan Burnham, survivor of a suicide attempt during his senior year in high school. Jordan is now a nationally-recognized mental health advocate who has addressed a Congressional briefing on Capitol Hill and was chosen as one of the “Best of Philly” for his work in public speaking and advocacy.
