The NAMI Maine Walk is the largest anti-stigma event for mental health in the state. It is also an opportunity to share stories of Hope, Recovery and Tenacity of Spirit. We at NAMI Maine hear stories everyday about the adversity individuals fight through as well as the negative impact that stigma has on individuals, families and suicide survivors.
Stigma can stop when we Start the Talk and that begins with sharing our stories. The expression of our stories are not always written or verbal, they can be told through poetry, art, photography, fabric art, collage and many other ways. We are looking for people to share these expressions for display in our Storytelling Tent, along with their message that speaks to Hope, Recovery and Resiliency. We would also like to hear if NAMI Maine has helped you in some way.
