Snap Fitness Announces Support of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)
At Snap Fitness we strongly believe in the correlation between physical and mental health, and that moving your body can positively affect your mental health. We’re on a mission to help people create positive lifestyle habits that make them feel fantastic and are the first to recognize that prioritizing mental health is essential for this.
That’s why we are supporting NAMI—the National Alliance on Mental Illness —who provides advocacy, education, support, and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives. NAMI, an alliance of more than 600 local Affiliates and 49 State Organizations, works within local communities to raise awareness and provide support and education to those in need.
At Snap Fitness, we pride ourselves on our presence in local communities all over the U.S. and beyond, so it is essential to support a mental health organization that has the same. Their hundreds of state organizations and affiliates across the country, offer an array of resources. NAMI’s local presence provides an opportunity for all Snap Fitness members to get the support they need or get involved in their local NAMI group.

Another local opportunity through NAMI is their NAMIWalks. Local NAMI affiliates will host 120 walks this year to raise funds and awareness for mental health. These walks provide a great opportunity to drive local activation within markets where we have Snap Fitness locations. Franchisees can connect with their local NAMI state affiliates to sponsor a NAMIWalk in their area and invite their members to participate!

NAMI also offers a variety of resources if you or someone you love needs help. If you want to learn more about specific mental health topics, their blog is a great place to visit.
If you need a safe space to talk, a NAMI group may be the support you’ve been looking for. To find and join a group near you, all you have to do is search for what support groups are offered by your local NAMI affiliates. You can also contact NAMI’s HelpLine Monday–Friday from 10 a.m.–10 p.m. ET.
We are excited to support NAMI and positively impact people’s lives. For more information on NAMI visit their website at https://www.nami.org/Home
