NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for adults living with mental illness. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others, and the groups are led by NAMI-trained facilitators who’ve been there.


NAMI’s Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model to ensure you and others in the group have an opportunity to be heard and to get what you need. The groups meet on a bi-weekly, weekly or monthly basis


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

Groups Currently Meet:

Tuesdays from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at First Christian Reformed Church,  2901 E. 26th Street.


Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 2300 S. West Avenue.
