Welcome to Walk for Mental Health Awareness Houston

The Walk Houston 2016 is all about a Step in the Lime Light taking Mental Illness center stage. As we enter our sixth annual event that has raised over $100,000 for Greater Houston area 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 8, 2016 we will gather at Stude Park – 1031 Stude St., Houston, Texas 77007.

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 Dialog with the subject of mental illness. Join the conversation. Take action. Make a difference. It Affects All Of Us!

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.
