WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., May 13, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Littman Krooks LLP is proud to be a sponsor of NAMIWalks Westchester. Team LK will walk with NAMI on Saturday, May 18th, rain or shine, at the Rye Town Park, Rye, NY to raise awareness of mental health and to support our friends and families.
Team LK will be led by partner Marion M. Walsh, a Board Member of NAMI Westchester, who focuses much of her legal practice on helping students with mental health conditions find the appropriate services and placement in school.
"Our work at Littman Krooks is aligned to NAMI's work in helping individuals with mental health concerns, from youth to elderly," says Marion. "We work to help families ensure that their loved ones have the right legal protections, services and public benefits. Advocating for those with mental health conditions is a social justice movement to help those disenfranchised, isolated and misunderstood," she says.
Here are a few reasons to join Team LK and support NAMI Westchester:
- NAMI works to end the pervasive and undeserved stigma that our society still perpetuates for individuals with mental health disorders. Mental health affects everyone and is part of the human condition. NAMI understands that, with treatment and services, individuals with mental health concerns can lead fulfilled and productive lives. At Littman Krooks, we work to end stigma for our clients, which leads to isolation, decline and inappropriate services.
- NAMI works to educate youth on mental health and suicide prevention, though the Ending the Silence Program. Marion is a volunteer for this program. At Littman Krooks, we work tirelessly to help young people at risk of suicide obtain appropriate educational and community services.
- NAMI provides an essential public health service by providing resources and help to families in supporting loved ones. We applaud NAMI's commitment to build a community of hope for all those in need through support groups and activities. At Littman Krooks, we work to help families navigate services and to obtain appropriate public benefits.
Join us on May 18 beginning at 8:50AM at Rye Town Park, Rye, NY. Bring your dogs and family.
