Please Support Me – #NAMIOCWalker – Thanks!

Kitt O'Malley walks to smash stigma against those of us living with mental illness #namiocwalker

Please support me and team STIGMA SMASHERS as we walk 5K for NAMIWalks Orange County 2016. NAMI Orange County has been instrumental in my mental health recovery.


NAMI Peer-to-Peer introduced me to the concept of mental health recovery and gave me HOPE. I volunteer as a Provider Education presenter and just trained to become an In Our Own Voice public speaker to share my story of mental health recovery.

NAMIWalks provides NAMI Orange County with 1/3 of their operating budget, enabling them to offer free mental health educational programs, meetings and support groups.

          No problem. Beside, you do not live here. You do more than enough as a mental health advocate and educator by sharing your story and others’ stories. Thank you for that.

    No male supporters yet? Because all men are evil, quoting from Bible. And they are not ashamed, quoting myself.

      Men are not inherently evil. My husband and son are not evil. Everyone, male and female, can love and can hate. As individual humans, we must choose love.
