We're so excited for the 6th Annual Mental Wellness Walk! After two years of holding the walk virtually due to the pandemic, we're returning to an in-person event this year and we can't wait to see you there.

The Mental Wellness Walk raises awareness of the mental health community resources available in our community and helps to end the stigma around seeking help. It is the premiere gathering of mental health providers, partners, and supporters in Western North Carolina that unite in the common goal of making mental health care accessible for all. The Walk is a public forum for normalizing conversations around mental health struggles so that all of us who need help can more easily access a qualified professional or peer for support. The Walk is hosted by All Souls Counseling Center (ASCC) and the National Alliance on Mental Illness Western Carolina (NAMI WC). All funds raised will support ASCC and NAMI WC's work.


Why participate in the Mental Wellness Walk?

  • Our community is facing an unprecedented mental health crisis in the wake of the pandemic and recent gun violence. Residents of Buncombe County have continually rated Mental Health as one of the most pressing public health issues facing our community
  • We want you to celebrate with us! Join us for a day of fresh air, exercise, and local music and network with a gathering of County and City leaders, business leaders, nonprofit partners, and many WNC residents that support mental health solutions!
  • Come learn about all the mental health resources available in WNC! Many mental health providers, and support organizations will have tables at the event so you can learn about their services


All Souls Counseling Center is a nonprofit organization that provides quality mental health counseling to uninsured and underinsured residents of Western North Carolina.

National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Western Carolina is an affiliate of NAMI, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
