I was the official photographer at today's NAMIWalks event in Seattle. More than 800 people walked at Magnuson Park to raise money for Washington chapters of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). More than $97,000 was raised by participants in the state's fifth annual NAMIWalks for the Mind of America. (I helped.)
NAMI says that one in four adults — an estimated 57.7 million Americans — experience a mental health disorder in a given year, and one in 17 lives with a serious affliction such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.
