Walk for Hope
Anderson O’Brien is on a mission to reduce mental health stigma in our community by supporting efforts to increase awareness, education, resources, and support.
Mental health issues affect our entire community. Mental Health was identified as one of the key calls to action in the most recent United Way of Portage County LIFE (Local Indicators For Excellence) Report. Along with the stigma, there is a shortage of resources for mental health services and support which prevents many individuals from seeking help. As members of this community, we want to help, and we want to encourage others to join us.
This year marks the 15th anniversary for the Walk for Hope in our community. Thank you to everyone from the Anderson O’Brien team as well as their family and friends who took part in this year’s Walk for Hope. The weather was perfect! The Walk for Hope is an annual event hosted by the Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness Coalition of Portage County. We hope that you can join us and others in the community in the walk next year.
