Registration, Fees, & Refund Policy
We're coming together as a community of mental health professionals, along with our partners, friends, and families, to support the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). This event is open to all, so please feel free to share on social media and invite your friends and families to join us in our online yoga event!
How to support the cause:
Your support means a lot to the Austin AMFT and the 43.8 million Americans who experience mental illness in a given year.

2019 NAMIWalk Team
Last year, the 2019 Austin AMFT NAMIWalk was a huge success! Thanks to our team leader and board member, Cat Donohoe, we met our goal of raising $1,000 for NAMI Central Texas. NAMIWalks Central Texas had 2,100+ walkers and raised a total of $334,964. The 2019 walk had the largest turnout and donation total to date and was the 5th largest walk in the country.
