Walk a Mile Rally

Walk a Mile in My Shoes


September 15, 2022 – Mark Your Calendar!!

Below are some important notes for those who will be joining us in person for the rally:

  1. In an effort to reduce touchpoints and immediate contact, there will be NO GOODIE BAGS handed out at the 2022 Event.  The decision was made to have individual commemorative hats laid out on tables for attendees to help themselves to.  It is important to note that NO FOOD will be given out this year.
  2. While we are not REQUIRING masks be worn during this event, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND that anyone who can wear a mask, wear one.
  3. As with any other event or outing, IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL OR RUNNING A FEVER please stay home.  We will miss you, but safety is our first priority.

More information will be available as we get closer to the event date!

Each year, we draw more than 2,500 advocates from across Michigan to the Capitol Building to support public behavioral healthcare.  This rally aims to highlight the need for increased funding for mental health services, raises awareness of behavioral health needs in health and policy discussions and works to banish behavioral health stigmas.

There are more than 300,000 citizens in Michigan who seek behavioral health services. Join us on Thursday, September 15, 2022 as we rally together on the Capitol Lawn for increased mental health funding and the need for behavioral health to be continually included in policy discussions.

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!
