NAMI Connection is a no cost to you, weekly support group where any adult with a mental health diagnosis can share experiences in a safe, confidential setting.  NAMI-trained peer facilitators guide groups using a structured model to ensure all have the opportunity to be heard, supported, and encouraged without judgement.  The group encourages empathy, productive discussion and a sense of community.

 How are Connection Recovery Support Groups structured?

  • Weekly 90 minute meetings offered no cost to you.
  • No need to register — You are welcome to join the group anytime.
  • Led by NAMI-trained individuals who are in recovery. They understand your challenges and can offer you encouragement and support.
