On Saturday, May 13th, employees, family members, patients, and friends of Esse Health walked to raise awareness of mental health and promote walking as part of a healthy lifestyle. In addition to being a sponsor of the National Alliance on Mental Illness’ 2023 St. Louis NAMI Walk, Esse Health raised more than $7,500 to provide support and resources, both online and in communities across the country.
