Why Attend a NAMI Support Group?
An environment of sincere, uncritical acceptance
Meetings begin with a review of group guidelines and the NAMI Connection Principles of Support. Following this introduction, anyone that wishes to, may share an update on current life success and/or challenges. The group works together to address the most pressing issues using a process called "group wisdom." Themes that naturally arise during the group also become a focus of group work. As a participant your voice is heard. You may contribute to the discussion empathetically, building a sense of community that is based on sincere, uncritical acceptance.
