Support

NAMI Family Support Group is a free, confidential, peer-led support group for family members, caregivers, and loved ones of people living with a mental illness. Gain insight from the challenges and successes of others facing similar circumstances. NAMI's Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model, ensuring everyone has an opportunity to be heard and to get what they need.

  • Designed for adult loved ones (18+) of people living with mental illness.
  • Led by family members of people living with mental illness.
  • No specific medical therapy or medication is endorsed or recommended.

Connections (Peer to Peer) is a free, confidential recovery support group for adults 18 and older who are living with mental illness  where people learn from one another's experiences, share coping strategies, and offer mutual encouragement and understanding. The group provides an ongoing opportunity to discuss the challenges of living with mental illness and the techniques for maintaining wellness. The group is facilitated by peers living in recovery.

Listen, Lead & Advocate

We listen. Our toll-free NAMI HelpLine allows us to respond personally to hundreds of thousands of requests each year, providing free referral, information and support—a much-needed lifeline for many.

We lead. Public awareness events and activities, including Mental Illness Awareness Week and NAMIWalks, successfully fight stigma and encourage understanding. NAMI works with reporters on a daily basis to make sure our country understands how important mental health is.

We Advocate. NAMI shapes national public policy for people with mental illness and their families and provides volunteer leaders with the tools, resources and skills necessary to save mental health in all states.
