On 10/10/15 H.O.P.E. participated the 2015 Walk For Mental Health Awareness - Houston in Stude Park just west of downtown Houston.
The Walk is a venue where local 501(c)(3) agencies and others can join as one to raise funds and awareness of mental health issues. The 5k Walk is designed to make all participates feel great and positive about their inner and outer body. That is why the Walk has no finish lines instead there is "Arch of Breakthrough" because only our Brothers and Sisters achieve their personal breakthroughs. Other than raising funds and awareness the Walk is raising self-esteem, self-respect, and worthiness.
After the Walk concluded participants had the opportunity to visit the tents at the Mental Health Expo where there was networking among the non and for profit agencies that offer mental health services and support to their clients.
H.O.P.E. therapists included (L to R) Ashley Horan, Debbie Edmunds, Joceyln Perkins, Catrina Scott, Erin Silva, and Sarah Henry. Not pictured is Nakia Roberson.
