In 1990, Congress established the first full week of October as Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW) in recognition of NAMI’s efforts to raise mental illness awareness. Since then, mental health advocates across the country have joined in the effort to educate the public about mental illness.
NAMI Southern Arizona will hold this year’s Candlelight Vigil for Mental Illness Recovery and Understanding on Tuesday, October 5, 2021 at the Cancer Survivors Plaza in Reid Park from 6-7pm. All are welcome!
