Hiking has been an important and beneficial part of my own journey from mental illness to mental health. I chose to hike with HIKE for Mental Health to show my gratitude and to support efforts to stamp out the stigma of mental illness. And I’m proud to be helping conserve wilderness trails at the same time. It’s great to be part of this event which helps so many. I hope you will consider making a donation, leaving a message and sharing this page.
Thank you for all you do!
