COMMUNITY ART OFFERING SUPPORT & HOPE IN PUBLIC PLACES TO COMBAT STIGMA

NAMIWalks this year is “Your Way” —  In Yolo County, “Our Way” is to share our light in a colorful way. We have decided to grab some chalk and share our important messages to our neighborhoods, in our driveways, on our streets, and in our downtowns for all to see. These are messages of hope and encouragement and love. We want everyone in our community to know they are #Not Alone and for our neighbors to have a new understanding and compassion, as 1 in 3 members of our community will have a mental health challenge within their lifetime. And this year, during the pandemic, every one of us faces mental health challenges of our own or we are supporting someone in our life who is struggling. We all need to be kind to one another and be kind to ourselves. We all need to combat stigma. Together, we’ve got this!!
