News & Events
Millions of American’s lives are impacted daily by mental health conditions. As a way to show support, NAMI Sarasota participates in and hosts several mental health awareness events.
Participating in a local or national NAMI event is a great way for you to help increase people’s understanding of the complexity of mental illness. Through these events we can expel myths, educate the public and show support for the many people affected by mental health that are working to improve their lives.
Location: Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium
1600 Ken Thompson Pkwy, Sarasota, FL 34236
Join us for our yearly event, Out of the Blue, which features a silent auction and raffle, catered food, and live music all night long. The money raised helps implement new programs and provide continued support for ongoing programs that directly serve those in crisis and those seeking long term support.
