Welcome to Walk for Mental Health Awareness Houston

The Walk Houston 2015 is all about a Step in the Lime Light taking Mental Illness center stage. As we enter our fifth annual event that has raised over $68,000 for local non-profit agencies and overall awareness to the cause, we recognized that none of it would have been possible without the support of our Walk Teams, exhibitors, sponsors, and volunteers. On Saturday, October 10, 2015 we will gather at Spotts Park (401 South Heights Blvd, Houston, TX 77007) located at the corner of Waugh Dr. and Memorial Park

Hundreds of participants have contributed to an agency that offers mental health services/support, and you can do the same by registering yourself or group to Walk With A Purpose. Any questions, please contact us at info@thehoustonwalk.org.

This year is all about the continued initiative to host a Positive Public Dialogue with the subject of mental illness. Join the conversation. Take action. Make a difference. It’s what it’s all about

Our Vision Statement

For those struggling under the weight of depression or a mental illness, past failures, or harmful relationships, every-day-living can feel like a death sentence. The physical, mental and emotional suffering steals the heart out of life and if left untreated, will ultimately destroy them. There is help and there is hope, but you can only find this by reaching outside of yourself. The Walk for Mental Health Awareness – Houston is a celebration of the hope of life after mental illness and a call to action by people in our community.
