Walk a Mile Rally

Walk a Mile in My Shoes

Rescheduled to September 29, 2020!!


With the onslaught of COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 19), many functions, trainings, conferences and events are being cancelled locally, statewide, and nationally.  In an effort to help prevent the spread of this virus, limit exposure, and to ensure the health of those we serve – some of the most vulnerable populations there are! – the Community Mental Health Association has decided to cancel the Walk A Mile Rally at the State Capitol on May 14, 2020.  WE KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THIS EVENT IS FOR THOSE WE SERVE TO HAVE THEIR VOICES HEARD!!  A new date to rally and be heard by our State Legislators has been scheduled for September 29, 2020!  More details will be sent out as they become available, and an updated Packet will be posted on the website as soon as it is developed.

Benjamin Franklin said that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, and while there is no cure for COVID-19, The Association will do its best to provide an ounce of prevention in any way that we can to protect the Public Mental Health System.  Thank you for your understanding.

Updated Walk A Mile Packet for September 29, 2020 coming soon!


In 2019, nearly 2,500 participants joined together at the Capitol Lawn in Lansing!  Thank you to all who participated, volunteered, or contributed to making this event another successful Rally!  We look forward to seeing everyone in 2020!

Why We Rally…

To enhance public awareness, because legislators need to know that Mental Health Matters.
To put an end to the stigma related to mental illness & developmental disabilities, because Michigan does not have parity (equality) between mental health & physical health care coverage.
To promote mental health and wellness, because we can make a difference!
