What is a NAMI Family Support Group?

NAMI Family Support Groups are no cost support groups for family and friends of individuals living with mental illness. Led by trained family member facilitators, you will find a Family Support Group to be a safe, confidential place to share your hopes and concerns and find new ways to cope.

Family Support Groups are guided by NAMI’s Principles of Support:

  • We will see the individual first, not the illness.
  • We recognize that mental illnesses are medical illnesses that may have environmental triggers.
  • We understand that mental illnesses are traumatic events.
  • We aim for better coping skills.
  • We find strength in sharing experiences.
  • We reject stigma and do not tolerate discrimination.
  • We won’t judge anyone’s pain as less than our own.
  • We forgive ourselves and reject guilt.
  • We embrace humor as healthy.
  • We accept we cannot solve all problems.
  • We expect a better future in a realistic way.
  • We will never give up hope.

There is no pre-registration for NAMI Family Support Groups. Simply show up!
