Click here to register for Family Support Group the first and third Wednesday at 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
NAMI Family Support Group is a peer-led support group for family members, caregivers and loved ones of individuals living with mental illness. Gain insight from the challenges and successes of others facing similar circumstances.
Too often, mental illness is an isolating experience, accompanied by profound anxiety. When your family member is diagnosed with a mental illness such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or any of several other illnesses, there is a dramatic change in the relational dynamics between family members.
NAMI’s Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model, ensuring everyone has an opportunity to be heard and to get what they need.
- Free of cost to participants
- Designed for adult loved ones (18+) of individuals living with mental illness
- Led by family members of individuals living with mental illness, that have been trained by NAMI.
NAMI New York State offers supports groups as well if our schedule does not work for you, you can join one of the online Family Support Groups meetings being run by NAMI Capital Region.
