Participant Perspectives

“Before coming to the support group, we had never spoken about mental illness to neighbors, friends and often not even to our relatives.”

“NAMI Family Support Group really works and it makes the group experience even better.”

“I just attended my first NAMI Family Support Group and the facilitators and the group experience was just the kind of support I was seeking at this time.”
