NAMI Family Support Groups are free groups for family members, friends, and other caregivers of people diagnosed with mental health conditions.
Family Support Groups provide a nonjudgmental environment where caregivers can discuss concerns, learn about local resources, and benefit from one another’s collective knowledge and experience. Led by NAMI-trained facilitators who are also family members, they provide comfort, hope, and a sense of community.
NAMI Family Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model, ensuring everyone has an opportunity to be heard and to get the support they need. By sharing your experiences in a safe and confidential setting, you gain hope and develop supportive relationships.
Most of our Family Support Groups are open to anyone, while some are especially for for parents of children and teens, elderly caregivers, and family members of people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Check out our list of special Family Support Groups.
Please note that our Family Support Groups are currently offered remotely – online or by conference call.
