Support Groups


NAMI Connection

Connection is a free, weekly peer-led support group for adults 18 and over, who are living with a mental illness. You can gain insight and understanding from hearing the challenges and successes of others. The support group follows a structured, yet informal model to ensure that you and others in your group have an opportunity to get what you need. Facilitators are Peers who have completed the NAMI Signature training and have been where you are.
