URBANA -- People are taking strides toward raising mental health awareness. A family walk was held at Meadowbrook Park.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) organized the event. The goal is to educate people about those who suffer with it.

Experts say most of those dealing with mental health issues aren't dangerous. Walks like this can help end the stigma.

Sunday was the last day of Mental Health Awareness Week. The money raised from the event will help the organization provide services for those dealing with mental health issues and their families.
