Connection Recovery Support Groups

What To Expect

NAMI Connections is a free, peer-led support group program for adults working on mental health recovery. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others. The groups are led by NAMI-trained facilitators who’ve been there. Groups follow a structured model to ensure you and others have an opportunity to be heard and get what you need.

By sharing experiences in a safe and confidential setting, you gain hope and develop relationships.  The group encourages empathy, productive discussion, and a sense of community.

All adults with mental illness, regardless of diagnosis.  Everyone is a valued participant.

What People Are Saying

The group has enabled me to take a good look at my illness and see that I am not alone.  The program has given me additional tools to not only accept my illness, but to help others along the way.
People are coming up with solutions and stuff to do for the next week.  One of our group attendees is taking her meds and getting herself to her counselor and is just about able to go back to her career in great part due to Connections.
