NAMI of Washington’s 5k walk is this Saturday and benefits an increasingly important cause. It is aimed at bringing attention to mental illness and to help do away with the shame and stigma attached to this serious condition.

One local man is determined to fight that stigma by publicly sharing the worst experience of his life.

For more information on the NAMI Walk on Saturday, May 15 at Magnuson Park at Sandpoint in Seattle, visit www.nami.org.
