Why NAMIWalks NH Matters
Last year, NAMI New Hampshire provided education, support and advocacy to more than 29,000 Granite Staters affected by mental illness and suicide. Every year, mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in 5 adults and children across the United States.

NAMIWalks NH is the Granite State’s largest mental health and suicide prevention event, last year bringing together 2,000+ participants to celebrate mental illness recovery, to honor those who have lost their lives to mental illness and to help raise funds, #crushstigma and promote awareness.

NAMI New Hampshire is a grassroots organization working to improve the lives of all people affected by mental illness and suicide through support, education and advocacy .

Mental illness is a chronic disease that affects over 254,000 adults and 55,000 children in NH each year.

In the US, the annual economic, indirect cost of mental illnesses is estimated to be $79 Billion. Most of that amount – approximately $63 Billion – reflects the loss of productivity.

  • A study conducted on the effects of depression in the workplace found that depression caused a loss of $44 Billion each year.
  • More than 90% of people who die by suicide have a diagnosable mental disorder.
  • Mental Illness treatment has a better recovery rate than treating heart disease.

NAMI NH provides support, education and advocacy to individuals and families affected by mental illness. Each year we provided hope and help to over 21,000 NH residents.
