Our Mission

NAMI Arkansas is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to help people living with mental illness, their families, and the community. NAMI Arkansas operates a statewide organization providing and coordinating a network of local support groups providing support, education, and advocacy throughout the state.


Join us For our 18th annual NAMI Arkansas 5K/walk.

The NAMI Arkansas 5K/walk to End the Stigma raises funds for NAMI Arkansas programs that support, educate, and advocate for those affected by mental illness.  It also provides a place to celebrate and honor those living with mental health issues and remember those with a mental health condition who have passed on.

We proudly offer participants 2 separate NAMI Arkansas Run/walk options this year.

1. Northwest Arkansas on September 23, 2023, @ Lake Fayetteville, Fayetteville, Arkansas  

2. Central Arkansas on October 7, 2023, @ 5001 Northshore Drive, North Little Rock, AR 72118.

Participants will have the option to choose the event that best fits their location needs. Of course, you can participate in both events.
