NAMI Family Support Group is a free, 90-minute weekly support group for family members, caregivers, and loved ones of individuals with a mental health condition. Facilitated by peers who have experience caring for loved ones living with a mental health condition, these trained individuals understand your struggles and offer compassionate support. Family Support Groups are structured in a casual, relaxed environment without an educational format, where everything you share is kept completely confidential. Members gain hope, insight, support, and community through conversations with peers who are in a similar position. You will have the opportunity to grow from other’s experiences as you learn from and support one another. You never have to share more than you want to, and just come when you need someone to talk to. Family Support Groups are open to all adults whose loved ones are living with a mental health condition, regardless of diagnosis. We welcome drop-ins and encourage you to share your thoughts at any time.
