Some important concepts you’ll learn at Support Group:
  • See the individual first, not the illness.
  • Recognize that mental illnesses are brain disorders that may have environmental triggers.
  • Gain insight and empathy from the challenges and successes of others facing similar circumstances.
  • Reject stigma and not tolerate discrimination.
  • Forgive yourself and reject guilt.
  • Embrace humor as healthy.
  • Accept that we cannot solve every problem.
  • Aim for better coping skills and work for a better future in a realistic way.
NAMI’s Support Groups are unique because they follow a model that ensures everyone has an opportunity to be heard. They are:
  • Free of cost
  • Led by adult family members who have been trained to facilitate a NAMI Family Support Group.
  • Not structured to recommend or endorse specific medical treatments.
  • Confidential
By sharing your experiences in a safe and confidential setting, you’ll benefit through other’s experiences, discover your inner strength, develop supportive relationships and a sense of community, and learn how to identify and use local resources.
