NAMI Family Support Group will help you:
  • Aim for better coping skills
  • Find strength in sharing experiences
  • Do not judge anyone’s pain
  • Forgive ourselves and reject guilt
  • Embrace humor as healthy
  • Accept that we cannot solve every problem
  • Understand that mental health conditions are no one’s fault and can be traumatic experiences


About our Facilitators:

NAMI facilitators use a nationally-designed model for the group. These facilitators are family education instructors or graduates of a NAMI family education class specializing in youth. They, too, have experience with a young family member living with a mental health condition. These trained family members volunteer for NAMI with the hope of supporting other families with lived experience.

Please note:

NAMI does not provide counseling or therapy. Our family support and education programs complement the help you receive from healthcare and social work providers.
