NAMI Adult Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for adults living with mental illness. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others.  The groups are led by NAMI-trained facilitators who have lived experience and are now living in recovery. 

NAMI’s Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model to ensure you and others in the group have an opportunity to be heard and to get what you need. The groups meet Monday and Tuesday weekly, 6:30 – 8:00pm.
