SUPPORT GROUPS FOR

Families and Caregivers

 

NAMI Family Support Group is a peer-led support group for family members, caregivers and loved ones of individuals living with mental illness. Groups generally meet on a monthly basis but may meet weekly. The hallmark of a NAMI support group is leveraging the collective knowledge and experience of the other participants.

What You Should Expect:

  • Meets monthly or weekly for 90-minute sessions free of charge.

  • Designed for loved ones (18 and over) of individuals living with mental illness.

  • Facilitated by a trained team of family members of individuals living with mental illness.

  • Confidential—share as much or as little personal information as you want.

  • Does not recommend or endorse any medications or other medical therapies for your family member.

  • Guided by Principles of Support.
