The MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS Walk/Run for Awareness is a family-friendly walk/run hosted by All Souls Counseling Center (ASCC). The purpose of this event is to raise awareness of the mental health resources available in our community and help to end the stigma around seeking help. It is the premier gathering of mental health providers, partners, and supporters in Western North Carolina that unite in the common goal of making mental health care accessible for all. Mental Health Matters is a public forum for normalizing conversations around mental health struggles so that all of us who need help can more easily access a qualified professional for support. Several mental health organizations, social service organizations, and community partners will have outreach tables at our Walk/Run. In addition to being active, come out to learn about some of the mental health and supportive resources available in WNC. 


All Souls Counseling Center is a non-profit organization located near Downtown Asheville providing compassionate mental health counseling, outreach, and education to those with barriers to access, with a focus on individuals who don’t have health insurance or can’t afford therapy with their current insurance. Our 18 licensed therapists offer both in-person and virtual individual, couples, and family counseling services on a sliding scale basis. We also offer affordable group counseling services on an as-need basis and have expanded our services to place our therapists within several partner community organizations to meet clients where they’re at and make affordable counseling as accessible as possible.
