Interested in becoming a NAMI Connections Recovery Support Group Facilitator?
NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group is a 90-minute weekly or bi-weekly support group for adults (18+) with a mental health condition. Participants gain the support of peers who understand their experience and gain insight into others’ challenges and successes. Each group is confidential and does not recommend or endorse any medications or medical therapies
This support group model encourages full group participation and creates upbeat and constructive meetings
NAMI Connection groups are led by a team of peer facilitators who make mental health and wellness a priority in their daily lives. The facilitators offer encouragement and help the group progress using the structured program model. Facilitators guide participants; they do not instruct nor provide therapy.
Who can facilitate the group?
Any adult with a mental health condition who makes mental health and wellness a priority in their daily life can apply to become a NAMI Connection facilitator. All potential facilitators are interviewed and screened to determine whether the opportunity is a good fit for the person and for the organization. Facilitators attend an intensive 2-day peer-led training to become certified and must be members of NAMI. All certified facilitators should commit to a minimum of one year of service with a co-facilitator.
