Place: St. Mary's Episcopal Church, 36 Ardmore Avenue in Ardmore

Are you, a loved one or perhaps someone in your network of friends and acquaintances struggling with a mental health issue?  One in five adults experience such challenges, and teens and young adults are particularly affected.   Learn about the symptoms and signs.  Hear about support and treatment options. Join a caring community of friends and neighbors to learn, have fun and step out for mental health awareness!

Our program will feature welcoming remarks from Dr. Mike Cirigliano, medical correspondent for the Fox 29 News program “Good Day Philadelphia, and a brief presentation by Jordan Burnham, survivor of a suicide attempt during his senior year in high school. Jordan is now a nationally-recognized mental health advocate who has addressed a Congressional briefing on Capitol Hill and was chosen as one of the “Best of Philly” for his work in public speaking and advocacy.  The Mental Health Resources Fair will offer a wealth of information about programs and services.

Tips for Raising Money

Don't forget to ask everyone you meet to support you in your walk. Ask them for $10 or $20 - small amounts can make a difference! Ask not only your co-workers, family and friends, but your hair dresser or barber, your mail carrier, your kids' teachers, your clients, your baker, your favorite store owners and others you interact with regularly.


Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing, along with sunglasses and a hat or other sun protection. You may want to bring rain gear too. This is a rain or shine event!
