This group is for relatives and others involved with individuals dealing with mental illness.  Groups are led by trained family members of individuals affected by mental illness.

Family Support Groups are an important free resource for families who have a loved one with a mental illness. Knowing that others have had the same experiences is a relief to families who have seldom spoken about mental illness to neighbors, friends, or, often, even relatives. Learning that others have been able to work out some common issues can inspire hope.

Through the NAMI Family Support Groups, you will find:

  • A chance to share your experience and learn from others who have been there
  • Information about brain disorders, treatment and services
