New Vitae Wellness and Recovery Participates in NAMI Bucks Walk for Awareness

June 13, 2019

New Vitae Wellness and Recovery residents and staff participated in the 5th annual Stride for Mental Health Awareness walk, hosted by NAMI Bucks County on May 18th, 2019. The event aimed to raise awareness, end the stigma surrounding behavioral health diagnoses, and acquire funds needed to expand the education and support programs offered by NAMI Bucks County.  

The event included food trucks, face painting, a DJ, a photo booth, superhero “NAMI man,” and more. New Vitae’s residents and staff joined community supporters to complete a 5k walk later in the day. Visitors also had the chance to enjoy refreshments and share personal stories of behavioral health recovery.  

Thank you to NAMI Bucks for your hospitality and to all of the community members who attended the event. We look forward to participating in next year’s walk!

"New Vitae Young Adult Services has helped me so much. The mentor staff is great. They are reliable, and always willing to teach me how to do things, rather than just doing them for me. Since coming to the program, I've grown into a better person."
