Open to the public, people of all faiths welcome! No RSVP required.
Every year, regardless of race, age, religion or economic status, mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in five adults and children across the US – that is nearly 60 million Americans or 200,000 in our community alone! The COVID-19 Pandemic has increased a need for mental health awareness in our community. Recovery is possible. Learn all you can. Do all you can. Take action. Speak out. Advocate.
As part of Mental Illness Awareness Week, October 3-9th, the National Alliance on Mental Illness Southern Arizona invites the community to participate in a Candlelight Vigil for Mental Illness Recovery and Understanding. There will be a candle lighting ceremony and personal stories of recovery and hope. Speakers tell their stories about how mental illness has affected them; their path to recovery and how they found help and hope. Information on NAMI Southern Arizona’s mental illness education, advocacy and recovery services will be available.
Candles will be provided.
Date: Tuesday, October 4th, 2022, 6-7 p.m.
Location: Cancer Survivors Plaza, Reid Park (22nd St. and Lakeshore Lane)
