One in five US adults suffer from mental illness, but unfortunately mental health is not as talked about as many other illnesses. As a result, people are left to deal with it on their own. Help us bring mental illness to the light and walk for someone you know who is suffering alone. Walk for
yourself, a family member, or a friend and help Spero Family Services raise funds to continue to provide mental health services to our Southern Illinois community.
