NAMI Connection is a free, weekly, 90 minute recovery support group for people living with mental illnesses where people learn from each other's experiences, share coping strategies, and offer each other encouragement and understanding. The group provides an on-going opportunity to discuss the challenges of living with mental illness and the techniques for maintaining wellness. All groups are facilitated by peers living in recovery.

Family Support:

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 network of friends who care and understand
Ideas that help you take care of yourself and your family
A chance to share your experience and learn from others who have been there
Information about brain disorders, treatment and services
