NAMI Family Support Groups are free groups for family members, friends, and caregivers of people diagnosed with mental illness.
NAMI Family Support Groups around the state provide a secure nonjudgmental environment where caregivers can discuss concerns and benefit from one another’s collective knowledge and experience. Led by NAMI-trained facilitators who are also family members, they provide understanding, comfort, and hope.
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.
NAMI Family Support Groups encourage empathy, productive discussion, and a sense of community. You’ll benefit through other’s experiences, discover your inner strength, and learn about local resources and how to use them.
