Are you concerned about your mental health? Do you feel alone and hopeless? Are you wondering how to cope? Reconnect, rebuild, and find support with NAMI Connection Recovery Support Groups.

NAMI Connection is a free, peer-led support group for people who are concerned about their mental health. Groups are led by NAMI-trained facilitators who’ve been there. NAMI Connection groups allow you to talk about your experiences in a safe and confidential setting. The groups encourage empathy, productive discussion, and a sense of community. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others.

NAMI Connection Recovery Support Groups will help you:

  • Find hope and develop relationships
  • Find better coping skills
  • Help others while helping yourself
  • Find strength in sharing experiences
  • Work for a better future in a realistic way
