NAMI Family Support Groups, offered by NAMI affiliates in communities across the country, are FREE, confidential and safe groups of families helping other families who live with mental health challenges. In NAMI Family Support Groups, participants join a caring group of people helping one another by utilizing their collective lived experiences and learned wisdom. The Groups are facilitated by trained individuals, with the lived experience of loved ones who struggle with mental health challenges.

Consider trying a group if you’ve felt overwhelmed, confused, frustrated, sad, or stressed because someone you care about is suffering from a mental health issue. Come and find support in a place where you can speak freely with others who have faced similar experiences; as well as, achieve a renewed sense of hope.
