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.
All NAMI classes and support groups are free. Membership is voluntary and inexpensive. Sponsorships and donated spaces make it possible to do more classes.
