How is NAMI Moves Structured?

  • Meets weekly for 60 – 90 minutes, depending on how long you want to run. The location has paved trail loops and the distance can be extended.
  • The first 15-20 minutes will be introductions and a program overview.
  • There is no need to register – just come when you feel like you want someone to talk to or want to run/walk to help with recovery.
  • NAMI Moves does not recommend or endorse any medications or other medical therapies.
  • The groups are led by trained individuals who are in recovery themselves or have helped others recover. They understand your daily challenges and can offer you encouragement and support.
  • All groups are confidential – you can share as much or as little personal information as you feel comfortable with.
  • A NAMI Moves Facebook group will be available for participants. You can use that group to organize self-guided group run/walks on days that NAMI Moves does not meet.

Who can attend?

All adults with mental illness, regardless of diagnosis.  Everyone is a valued participant.

Join us for our next run and talk to someone who understands … someone just like you.
