More Schools Sought for "Shoe Day"

Every April and May, NAMI Minnesota hosts “Walk A Mile In Our Shoes” in a dozen high schools to supplement our existing school programming and celebrate Mental Health Month. We invite schools to join us in our mission to help students and staff continue the conversation around mental illness and the negative consequences of stigma.

For NAMI’s Shoe Day, we set up booths during lunch periods and students are encouraged to write pledges on our interactive banner as to how they can offer support to themselves, their loved ones, and others in their community. Students are also given the opportunity to talk to NAMI Staff and volunteers and get connected to resources or hold discussions.

To make our 2018 mission possible, we need you! If you are involved within the school system in any way, consider having NAMI come out to engage with your school.  For information, contact Liz Babkin, Parent and Youth Educator, at ebabkin@namimn.org or 651-645-2948 x109.
