VIRTUAL family support groups

 

Virtual Family Support Groups, offered by NAMI Oklahoma Affiliates in communities across the state, are free, confidential and safe groups for families helping other families who live with mental health challenges. In NAMI Family Support Groups, families join a caring group of individuals helping one another by utilizing their collective lived experiences and learned wisdom. Family members can achieve a renewed sense of hope for their loved one who has mental illness, ranging from ADHD to schizophrenia. 

 

Attend one of our local virtual family support groups below for resources, support and hope.

participant perspective

“Before coming to the support group, we had never

spoken about mental illness to neighbors, friends

and often not even to our relatives.”

“NAMI Family Support Group really works and helps

me to be a better mother, wife and sister.”
