NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group

2nd.Monday of every month
See support groups for additional information

NAMI Connection is a Recovery Support Group Program that is a peer-based, mutual support group program for any adult living with a mental illness. Connection groups provide a place for individuals who have in common the experience of living with mental illness, to share experiences and use them as learning opportunities. Groups are a safe place to confront the challenges that all people face, regardless of diagnosis.

Each group:

  • Meets for 90 minutes
  • Offered free of charge to NAMI members and non-members alike
  • Follows a flexible structure without an educational format
  • Does not recommend or endorse any medication or medical therapies

All Groups are confidential, participants can share as much or as little personal information as they wish. Connection groups maintain a positive atmosphere through sincere, uncritical acceptance modeled by the facilitators, the guideline to "keep it in the here and now", and the invitation for group members to share "what has worked" for them.

These groups provide a place that offers respect, understanding, encouragement, and hope. Connection groups should add to, and not replace, the treatment plans determined by individuals and their mental health care provider.

The vision of the NAMI Connection Program is that every person in this country who lives with a mental illness will have, within reasonable traveling distance, a Connection group to attend.
