In honor of Mental Health Awareness month in May, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Miami is hosting Miami-Dade County’s first Walk for Mental Health, “NAMIWalks Your Way,” on May 22, 2021 from 9 am – 4 pm. The hybrid outdoor and virtual event, Miami-Dade County’s first walk to raise awareness and funding for local mental health support.

The walk is designed to combat the stigma of mental health conditions and raise funds for NAMI Miami’s free programs such as support groups, peer mentoring programs, outreach and educational classes. Despite of the physical challenges presented during the pandemic, NAMI Miami aided more than 8,000 students, young adults, adults, families and local leaders with its prevention, education, mental wellness and support programs. These programs are always offered at no cost to participants, led by NAMI trained peer-leaders and remain confidential.

NAMI Miami-Dade will kick off the event the week prior to May 22, presenting live-streamed speakers, entertainment and other activities during the week leading up to May 22. These programs will foster a sense of community, showcase sponsors, and raise awareness about the crucial wellness resources that NAMI Miami provides during these trying times. Miami-Dade County Public Schools counselors will be leading walk teams as part of NAMI’s partnership with the District in “Ending the Silence” youth and family awareness programming.

The event will allow “Walk Teams” to take part by choosing safe activities like walking the beach, a park, around a neighborhood, practicing yoga, organizing safe group activities outside or live- streaming a skill such as cooking, dancing or painting. Team leaders will recruit members to join them, and to help fund-raise via email, social media or phone calls.

Locust Projects presents HOW TO: Oh, look at me, a new site-specific installation by Miami and Berlin-based artist GeoVanna Gonzalez. Open Wed-Sat, 11am-5pm by appointment, admission is free.

HOW TO: Oh, look at me deepens Gonzalez’s commitment to creating provocative, participatory social spaces within institutional settings. As acts of queer infiltration, class—aware interventionism, her work wants us to see and explore, to dance and read—outloud the potential of our embodied cognition. We are only when we interact, when we commune.
