Why you should attend

REINFORCEMENT IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF SINCERE, UNCRITICAL ACCEPTANCE

At each meeting, you review the Group Guidelines and Principles of Support and update the group on the current events in your life, then spend the bulk of the meeting in group discussion or “group work.”

The group addresses group members’ urgent issues, and participants share their learned experience or “group wisdom.”As a participant, your voice is heard, and you can contribute to a dynamic environment that encourages empathy, productive discussion and a sense of community.

We will be proceeding with hybrid meetings starting March 2022.

NAMI Parent and Caregiver Support Group is a peer-led support group for parents and caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental illnesses.

The support group can offer you general mental illness information and practical advice on issues related to your loved one’s mental illness. It also gives you the appropriate space to have your personal needs met; therefore, equipping you to provide the best possible care for your family member.

Taking time to voice your experiences and to hear others’ experiences may help you access your inner reserves of strength. By joining the support group, you could gain confidence in coping with your family member’s mental illness, as well as gain local knowledge on how to best access services for your family member.

Childcare provided for children (18 and under) that are able to use the restroom independently.
