JOPLIN, MO.--- The National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI, held a kickoff luncheon for their upcoming annual Walkathon in Joplin. Over the past seven years, the group has been able to raise more than $40,000. The group helps provide education and support for those with mental illness along with their friends and family. There are several different programs available to help.

"We have a 'Double Trouble' support group that is for people that have substance abuse and mental health issues. So we have special programs whenever there is a need in our community, we figure out a way to address that need," said Rebecca Macy, NAMI.

The Walkathon will be held on April 26th at 9 a.m. at Leonard Park at 4th and Turk in Joplin. Teams are forming to walk in the event. If you would like to help raise money, you can call 417-781-6264 .
