NAMI LGBTQ+ Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for adults who experience symptoms of a mental health condition. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others, and the groups are led by trained similarly-identified peers.

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.

Support Groups: Last Wednesday of the month, staring October 25th.

In person: 13830 58th St N Suite 413 33760, FL or

By sharing your experiences in a safe and confidential setting, you gain hope and develop relationships. The group encourages empathy, productive discussion and a sense of community.

NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group will help you:

  • See the individual first, not the illness
  • Recognize that mental illnesses are medical illnesses that may have environmental triggers
  • Understand that mental illnesses are traumatic events
  • Aim for better coping skills
  • Find strength in sharing experiences
  • Reject stigma and not tolerate discrimination
  • Not judge anyone’s pain
  • Forgive ourselves and reject guilt
  • Embrace humor as healthy
  • Accept that we cannot solve every problem
  • Work for a better future in a realistic way

These groups are open to the community, regardless of diagnosis.
