About our programs

The educational programs including our support groups and classes are facilitated by individuals with lived experience. This means that our programs are not clinical in nature, but instead include a group of individuals who can learn and grow from one another.

We begin our support groups by reviewing 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.

Our classes are curriculum-based, meaning our facilitators follow clear guidelines of the content discussed in each class. For more information on a specific class, visit the links above. As a participant in our programming, your voice is heard. You may contribute to the discussion empathetically, building a sense of community that is based on sincere, uncritical acceptance.
