4th Annual NAMIWalks St. Tammany Goes Virtual

Published by:

For the past three years, NAMI St. Tammany has populated the beautiful Mandeville Lakefront with hundreds of walkers, showing support for mental health awareness, advocacy, and support, growing larger each year.

With the impacts of COVID-19, our daily lives and routines have been interrupted, leaving uncertainty, anxiety, added stress and often depression. Many individuals living with a mental illness are struggling to maintain their recovery while others are experiencing mental health symptoms for the first time. We are just beginning to see the impacts of COVID-19 on mental health. Now, more than ever, we want to show our community during the pandemic that “You are not alone.”

Unable to rally as usual this year, we have chosen to bring our 4th Annual NAMIWalks St. Tammany event to a virtual platform. On Saturday, October 10th, NAMI St. Tammany joins over 70 NAMIWalks virtual events across the country uniting for “A National Day of Hope” to show solidarity in our mission to increase awareness for mental health and recovery.

A Virtual Walk means you get to choose how you want to participate. How do you practice self-care? Take a walk around your neighborhood, share your story on social media, or host a virtual yoga party. Get creative to show your advocacy and support.

We invite everyone to join us, wherever you are, to remind our community that mental health matters and resources are available to help. Together we will continue to work toward our goal of #MentalHealthforAll.

Saturday, October 10th – NAMIWalks St. Tammany Online

Shop Local, USA

Published by:

The mission of Shop Local, USA is important because we need to re-focus attention on our local businesses who support the infrastructure of our towns and cities by providing jobs, collecting and paying taxes and creating overall economic activity as they compete with on-line shopping.

The best way to get more customers is to show them a map to the front door of your business.  Over the years, we have produced numerous caricature maps featuring local businesses with much success and now, information about your business can be available on our website providing even more exposure.

While we will produce and distribute full color printed versions of our maps, the real value is an all new unique digital microsite strategy designed to provide our businesses world-wide exposure on the Internet via the latest technology available.  Specific details and information utilizing digital links such as your telephone, email, your website, Facebook, Twitter, a Google map to your business address and other links are designed specifically to showcase your business and create accessibility with a simple click of the mouse.

The cost for a business to participate could be less than $25.00 a month depending on the location of the project.  This includes your own personally designed and approved microsite with your choice of content, all the latest links where applicable, accessible by mobile devices, inclusion on the full color printed versions and with promotional advertising options to increase sales for your business. 

A.G. Crowe, a successful businessman for many decades while serving as a school board member and state legislator, started one of his first businesses in Slidell (St. Tammany Office Products) by sponsoring a caricature poster map with his friend and artist, Ron Barthet.  The project was so successful that dozens of new projects featuring businesses from various towns and cities have since been produced.

To be included, please call 985.788.9772 or email to reserve your place on the map.
