BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

Mental health awareness took center stage in Bethlehem on Friday.

The Unity House held its 11th annual Mental Health Walk. The group started at the Rose Garden and walked to the Hotel Bethlehem and back.

Organizers said the event is meant to raise awareness of mental illness and to remove the stigma that's sometimes associated it.

The walk is held every May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month.
