The PETE WARREN MEMORIAL WALK took place on MAY 1, 2016

The Annual “Pete” Warren Memorial Walk for Mental Health took place Sunday, May 1, 2016. Our 2016 theme is “Embracing Mental Health.” The Walk is our biggest fund raiser of the year and especially now, when funding for mental health services is ebbing, we need everyone’s help. The Walk is designed to promote positive mental health for all, to reduce the stigma that still surrounds mental illness, and to reduce the prevalence of suicide in our area. All funds raised enable us to provide most of our services at low or no cost to residents of Central Virginia as we have done for the past 60 years. Mental Health America of Central Virginia is a 501c3 non-profit organization. We are a United Way Partner Agency and are affiliated with both Mental Health America National and Mental Health America of Virginia.
