What is NAMI Connection?

A Vital Link to Your Community And A Key to Your Recovery  

Too often, mental illness is an isolating experience, accompanied by profound anxiety.  For those diagnosed with a mental illness, talking with someone to share coping strategies and insights, as well as problems and concerns, can be an important link in the path to recovery.

NAMI Connection is a recovery support group program for people living with mental illness that is expanding in communities throughout the country.  These groups provide a place that offers respect, understanding, encouragement, and hope.

NAMI Connection offers a casual and relaxed approach to sharing the challenges and successes of coping with mental illness.  Each group:

  • Meets weekly for 90 minutes

  • Is offered free of charge

  • Follows a flexible structure without an educational format

There is no need to register - just come when you feel like  you need someone to talk to.

The groups are led by trained individuals who are in recovery themselves.  They understand your daily challenges and can offer you encouragement and support.  All groups are confidential - you can share as much or as little personal information as you wish.
