BOSTON — The Boston 25 News team proudly partnered up with the National Alliance on Mental Illness to help de-stigmatize mental health conditions and promote awareness.
On Saturday morning, Boston 25 News anchors Mark Ockerbloom and Vanessa Welch, along with reporters Crystal Haynes and Elysia Rodriguez showed their support by walking 5km along the Charles River.
Starting at the DCR Artesani Park, participants helped spread mental health awareness and support NAMI efforts.
NAMI is currently supporting Massachusetts legislation to expand Crisis Intervention Team training for police and first responders.
CIT training across the state would improve police response to people with mental health conditions.
