Millions of people are affected by mental illness each year. Across the country, many people just like you work, perform, create, compete, laugh, love and inspire every day. We invite the Warrior Community to join us for the 2020 Virtual Mental Health Awareness Walk to increase awareness and reduce stigma for the millions of those affected by mental illness and thoughts of suicide.
In previous years the Mental Health Walk took place at the end of the Winter semester, this year, 2021, the walk will be in alignment with WSU Mental Health Day and participants can complete their one-mile walk anytime anywhere between February 12 - 24, 2021.
Participating is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
