LK Honors Mental Health Awareness Month and Sponsors NAMIWalks 2023
Published April 24, 2023
May is Mental Health Awareness Month! Littman Krooks is proud to be a Bronze sponsor of NAMIWalks Westchester. The walk will be held on Saturday, May 20th at 9:00 a.m., at Ridge Road Park, Hartsdale, New York, the future site of the Westchester Healing Garden. NAMI is a grassroots organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all individuals and families whose lives are affected by mental illness and co-occurring disorders
The work of NAMI Westchester is more critical than ever. We applaud the work of NAMI Westchester, as our work at Littman Krooks LLP is aligned to their mission in helping individuals whose lives are affected by mental illness. For Mental Health Awareness Month this year, NAMI is launching the “More Than Enough” campaign to uplift and empower all.
Here are some of the reasons we sponsor NAMI Westchester’s annual walk:
- NAMI Westchester works to end the pervasive stigma that society perpetuates toward individuals with mental health disorders. Both NAMI Westchester and Littman Krooks believe that individuals who have mental health challenges can lead fulfilling lives. We work to help families ensure that their loved ones have the right legal protections, services and public benefits, educational and community services.
- Through their outreach programs, NAMI Westchester educates the community on mental health and suicide prevention. For example, the Ending the Silence program for young people is critical to educate on mental health and suicide prevention, for young people.
- We applaud NAMI Westchester’s commitment to build a community of hope through their HelpLine, support groups and educational classes, which helps families create support systems. At Littman Krooks, we work to help families navigate services and to obtain appropriate public benefits, and we advocate for changes in legislation.
- The people who volunteer with NAMI Westchester are hopeful, bright and sensitive and we love being a partner and supporting this work. So many of these volunteers share their dedication on walk day that the feeling is truly inspirational.
Littman Krooks is honored to sponsor NAMIWalks Westchester 2023 and we look forward to working together this year and beyond, toward improving the quality of life for all individuals and families whose lives are affected by mental illness. Please join our LK team and donate to this worthy cause!
