What is a NAMI Family Support Group?

NAMI Family Support Group is a 60-90-minute weekly or monthly support group for adult friends and family members (18+) of people with mental health conditions. Participants gain support from peers who understand their experience and gain insight into others’ challenges and successes. Each group is led by two loved ones (parent, sibling, caregiver, adult child, spouse or partner) of an individual with a mental health condition, follows a flexible structure, and does not recommend or endorse any medications or therapies. 

Who can facilitate a group?

Any family member of a person who is experiencing or has experienced a mental health condition may apply to become a NAMI Family Support Group facilitator. All potential facilitators are screened to determine whether the opportunity is a good fit for the individual and for the organization. Prospective facilitators attend an intensive 2-day training to become certified. All facilitators must be members of NAMI and are expected to commit to a minimum of one year of service with a co-facilitator.
