“Putnam County Mental Health Awareness Walk” sponsored by NAMI Putnam County
Join the thousands of concerned citizens in over 85 communities across the nation will walk together to raise money and awareness to ensure vital, free NAMI programs and services are available to provide help and hope to those in need. Every journey begins with that first step. Through NAMIWalks’ public, active display of support for people affected by mental illness, we are changing our American communities and ensuring that help and hope are available for those in need.
The Putnam County Fifth Annual Mental Health Awareness Walk will be held Saturday May 5th, 2018 9 AM – Noon ( Registration 8 AM)
Round trip: Carmel Fire Dept. -> Putnam County Bike Path
Walkers are participating to help raise awareness but also to help raise funds to support families and individuals in Putnam County who are struggling with mental illness. Walkers can find sponsors who are willing to contribute money to help the walker raise more money. We have a form to list the contributions of sponsors which the walker would turn in.

We had our Mental Health Awareness Walk May 6th, 2017. We started from Carmel Firehouse and walked to the Court House.
Chairman of the Putnam County Joint Veterans Council Dale Cusack led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Maryellen Odell addressed us.
The walk continued to the bike path and back.
Our numbers were low, most likely the weather, however , we believe we came close to our budget and we made some in roads with our community leaders about our objectives and goals.
A picture of us assembled at the court house is shown.
