This week Helping Hand welcomes back NAMI Hawai‘i, the National Alliance on Mental Illness Hawai‘i. This year’s Walk For Mental Health is coming up October 14th in Honolulu, and there are a lot of ways to support them, from walking with a team, to volunteering to donating supplies and prizes. HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Kumi McDonald, Executive Director of NAMI Hawai‘i.

Helping Hand is a weekly feature airing Fridays on HPR1 stations across the state as part of the afternoon drive version of All Things Considered, and then archived online here. Every Friday afternoon, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to the disabled and others among the most vulnerable.
