NAMI offers Support Groups, 1-to-1 Recovery & Family Support to individuals and families dealing with mental illness. While they are not substitutes for clinical assistance, our programs provide outstanding education, skills training and support from people with the unique understanding of lived experience, at no cost to you.
NAMI offers a wide range of evidence-based educational opportunities for those suffering from mental illness, their friends and families, and their communities. You can register for classes at no cost, or get access to more information and resources.
It is critical that we have strong advocacy for persons with mental illness and their families. This not only involves raising community awareness but also bringing those needs to the attention of policy makers, service providers and medical staff.
Maintaining personal wellness is important to living a healthy and fulfilling life. Did you know that Wellness is much more than physical health? NAMI offers workshops and classes for those interested in learning tools to achieve optimal Wellness.
