Peer Support Groups

NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for adults living with mental illness. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others, and the groups are led by NAMI-trained facilitators who’ve been there.

NAMI’s Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model to ensure you and others in the group have an opportunity to be heard and to get what you need. The groups meet on a bi-weekly, weekly or monthly basis.

NAMI National Helpline: 1-800-950-6264 (not a crisis line)

Compassionate Ear Warmline:  1-866-927-6327 (peer operated service-not a crisis line)
