Due to the current COVID 19 Epidemic and technical difficulties with Zoom, we are unable to offer Family Support Group this coming Friday. However, we are gearing up to offer Family Support Group meetings using Zoom in the very near future. We will advise you of the schedule when a digital Family Support Group is ready. In the meantime, there are two options if you feel the need to talk with a Family Support Group facilitator:
- Call our NAMI-CC phone number 518-336-0246 and leave a brief message, your phone number, and your name and one of our facilitators will get back to you as quickly as they are available.
OR email firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number and name and we will forward that to a facilitator to call you.
- You can join one of the online Family Support Groups meetings being run by NAMI Capital District –Click Here for listing.
If you are having a mental health emergency call 911 or the Mobile Crisis Assessment Team at 518-943-5555.

We are an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Our mission is to champion justice, dignity and respect for all individuals, families and friends affected by mental illness in Columbia County. We strive through education, advocacy and support to eliminate stigma and effect positive change to improve the lives of people with mental illness.
Education – helping families and individuals become aware of the most current facts about mental illness, its treatment, and the services available here in Columbia County, New York. See the Programs tab (menu above) for Family to Family and eCPR courses.
Support – helping families and consumers cope with mental illness. From the important phone numbers on our website, to the support provided by families that themselves have experienced mental illness at home, we are here to help!
Advocating – at the family, county, and state level for proper treatment of those with mental illness.
We welcome you to visit us at any of our upcoming meetings or events. All of our members have experience with mental illness – either directly or as a family member with an affected loved one or as a mental health provider – and we invite you to come and share your concerns with us.
